It means you must not use...
set TBIBase=D:\My Backups\
So, this is right?
And this is not?
I'll read through the IFWRotate Readme.
Once you get the hang of it, it's easy. There are only 5 or 6 lines to edit.
For what it's worth, here are my lines...
set TBIParms=/b /uy /d:w0@0x1,0xC5 /v /hash
set TBIDifParms=/uy /v
I'll have a look at it.
I have always liked the Reflect purge feature.
This will basically do the same thing, I think.
IFW has a /purge parameter. Page 176 in the Manual.
I'll have a look.
Also. I have always found it difficult making scheduled differential backups with IFW, so I have always made full.
It appears that the purge feature on Page 176 only works on time rather than specified number of backups.
This is what I get for TBIParms using the "Show Command" button as suggested in the readme.
/wait /b /d:w0 /f:
I have this in my Task Scheduler Arguments.
/min /wait /b /uy /um /d:w0 /f:
So, using the example in the readme.
Would this backup my 3 partitions on my operating system drive?
set TBIParms=/b /d:w0@0x1,0x3 /v
That will backup two partitions.
Can you post your two "Show Command" lines for a full and a diff backup and I'll let you know what the "Set" lines should be? Post the entire lines.
Click Show Command. Save to file, OK. Then you can Copy/Paste.
Edit.... I only need your Full Backup Show Command line. The diff Show Command isn't needed.
See above edit.
"C:\Program Files (x86)\TeraByte Drive Image Backup and Restore Suite\imagew64.exe" /wait /b /d:w0 /f:"D:\System_Backup\Image_for_Windows\Backup-w0-$~YYYY$-$~MM$-$~DD$-$~HHMM$"
I like to backup the entire drive. Not just a single partition. As you can see on this computer, there are 3 partitions.
I read in the manual that you can run the purge after a successful backup rather than the default before backup. You put minus (-) sign before the number. But that was for number of days. Not for number of backup. Will minus (-) also work for number of backups?
Thanks. Try these...
set TBIParms=/b /uy /d:w0 /hash
The count lines are your choice.
Omit Purge for the time being.
We can hide the Command Window and IFW GUI after you get it working.
Edit... /v removed
Your full backup will be named something like this...
Diff could be...
If you don't like "Entire" make....
I'll just be a little while, Brian.
I am installing some new drives on one of my computers.
Then I'll use what you posted above. This is what I copied from the readme.
That's why I thought set TBIParms=/b /d:w0@0x1,0x3 /v would backup 3 partitions.
I'm backing some stuff up now.
Where do you place the batch file, Brian?
Edit: I just made a Batches sub-folder.
Anywhere you like. But don't move it after it's been scheduled.
I have run it from the Task Scheduler, and there is no GUI. But I know why.
I also made a desktop shortcut, but it didn't work, so I'll have to re-visit that.
Finished. Is this how it should look?
