Backup of Dynamic folder

Post by mohit1 » Fri Feb 07, 2020 5:44 am

Hello Team,

I have a specific path i.e. C:\Backup. In that folder I have a sub-folder which creates daily in name of time & date stamp. Now, I would like to take backup of specific files from time & date stamp folder from Cobian. How can I do that?

If the file dynamic names are not so complex, you could perhaps use some parameters like the ones listed on the help file. For example for dates and time you could use:

%DATETIME is replaced with the current date and time. Uses the system format settings


%FORMATDATETIME - Same than %DATETIME but you can specify the format of the date and time. To read more about formatting strings, consult the help file under the Options paragraph. Example:

%FORMATDATETIME="yyyy mm dd hh nn ss"

%FNFORMATDATEIME - Same than %FORMATDATETIME but the result can be used as a file name because all illegal characters will be replaced
