    Hi,

    i'm using ATI 11 and would like to use the pre/post-commands feature.
    After my backup task has finished, i want to set a post-command, which copies the backup file on another external USB drive.
    I'd like to use a bat-file with a simple copy-command for this job.

    So i need the filename of the backup, to set it as argument for the bat-file.
    Can you tell me, how to find out the file name of the backup file?
    Is there a certain variable in ATI with the value of the filename or the path?

    Or is there another way for doing this job?

    Thanks for your help!

    Greetings,
    LXS

    Hi,

    I am in doubt that there is a variable which contains the filename.

    Month ago I have written a little "exe" which determins the last image filename, the number of files and the volume of all.
    It copies them to a USB stick. LOGfile and upload to the internet included ;).
    But: it only works with images of a backup location.

    Hello LXS,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    We are sorry for delayed response.

    It would depend on how exactly you set the task. For example, a task to create only full backups stored without use of Acronis Backup Locations will always create an archive with the same name (specified during the creation of the task). Could you please describe your task in more details?

    Perhaps you could also find this Acronis KB article to be useful.

    Thank you.
