locked Re: Saving configs


John Petrocelli
 

Hello Jeff & all,

   Here is my simple CMD file with instructions.

  1) Locate your "config" directory for JTAlert.
      In my case it is in "C:\Users\<USERID>\AppData\Local\HamApps\
<Call>\config".  Note to replace <USERID> with your computer's User-ID & "<Call>" with your correct callsign.

  2) Create a NEW directory in the above location with a name of "#Backup".
      Note the result will be "
C:\Users\<USERID>\AppData\Local\HamApps\<Call>\config\#Backup".

  3) Copy the  CMD file text (below) into the directory
       
"C:\Users\<USERID>\AppData\Local\HamApps\<Call>\config"

     You can  use Notepad to create this file, but be sure it has an extension of "cmd".  You can name the file however you wish.
      In my case I named it "JTAlert_Config_Backup.cmd".
==================Here is the CMD file================================
@Echo Off
For /f "tokens=2-4 delims=/ " %%a in ('date /t') do (set mydate=%%c%%a%%b)
For /f "tokens=1-4 delims=/:. " %%a in ("%TIME%") do (set mytime=%%a%%b%%c)
rem
Echo copy JTAlertX\*.* #Backup\*.*.%mydate%-%mytime%
copy JTAlertX\*.* #Backup\*.*.%mydate%-%mytime%
Pause
=================================================================

Thanks both.  Certainly in the meantime your backup file utility sounds good John.  Laurie: I look forward to the release of v3!
