I do similar, but once at end of day just before leaving for the night.

I have a Robocopy batch file that mirrors my working directory on C: to my
network drive that is backed up by IT every night.  I have a shortcut on my
desktop that I click, then lock the machine and go home.  It looks similar
to the following:


--------------------------------------------------------------

echo
"*******************************************************************************">>
 c:\temp\robocopy.log
robocopy c:\[source directory] \ h:[destination
directory]   /MIR /a-:R /log+:"c:\temp\robocopy.log" /nfl /ndl

--------------------------------------------------------------


This copies only the later version of the changed files and deletes the
removed files. This way I always have a mirror of my working directory and
a log of what was done.

This has saved my butt a number of times because since I know I have a
mirrored directory, I can try things on my working directory of files
knowing that if I don't get the expected results, I can always delete from
my C drive and download my backup to try again.

The time it takes varies with how many files I've changed...it could go
from 10 files to over 4,000 files, depending on what I've done since the
last backup.

HI,

It has been recommended to me, by my Manager, that I use Sourcesafe to
control archiving of all my Framemaker files. Sourcesafe is used by our
Software developer to archive his files.

Currently, I manually archive on a weekly basis by copying files from my
local C:\ drive to the company server.

Thoughts appreciated.

Kind regards,
Denis Daly
