Searching backup tool which allows pattern matching for the path (!) and ZIP compression adding


U

Ulf Meinhardt

Well, I know, there are hundreds of backup tools out on the market for backing up certain parts of my data.

However after having tested dozends of them I had to notice that ALL of them allow (at most) only filtering
of filenames but not pathes.

Example: they allow to backup all *.pdf files in my directory tree.
But I found no tool which offers: Backup all files which contain *log* in the path and/or file
like in

D:\project1\log\data\2005\mydata1.txt
or
D:\test\mylog_september\first.dat

Does someone know such a tool with this "advanced" filtering?

Furthermore it should be able to put it in a target zip archive. If target zip archve already exist it should add it.

You can roll your own with this batch file:

@echo off
set string=log
dir /s /b | find /i "%string%" > c:\files.lst
for /F "tokens=*" %%* in (c:\files.lst) do zip "x:\Archives\MyArchive.zip"
"%%*"

(There is something strange with your post - I cannot see my replies
to it. If this third attempt does not work then I will let it go.)
