Re: Command line arguments

Post by cobian »

This version has dropped the special command line utility from older versions. Now you can use the application Cobian.exe from the command line.

The arguments are:

-nogui Don't start the user interface

-autoclose Close the program when the backup is done

-bu Backup all the tasks immediately

-list:(ListName) start the program using the list on ListName. If the list name contains spaces, surround THE WHOLE argument between quotes.

-m: Opens the interface maximized. No tray icon is shown


Cobian.exe "-list:C:\Program Files\List.lst" -bu -nogui

Other parameters can also be used. See the help file.
