Well, if you are going to add a node for tracks to be backed up, I'm not opposed to the idea, and since you helped provide the SQL to find the tracks, you are halfway there. :wink:

Ok,

I have to finish the other script I am working on before I can use this one myself, so once its done I'll come back and add the node for sure. :)

Glad these are the only types of issues with the script so far :)

For anyone using this script I just realised that it isn't backing up other files in the directory, specifically the album art, etc if its an external file rather than in the tag.

Not that it isn't working as intended but I forgot about art that can be separate :)

I'm almost ready to use this script myself so I'll add that functionallity before then :)

Installed version 2.2 but I can't see these extra options. Have you uploaded the wrong file or am I doing something wrong?

Vista is doing something stupid. It's refusing the update the Scripts.ini file for no particular reason, so although the new file was installed, the menu item was still pointing at the old one. I've not fixed it yet, but looking at the file itself I can see I do have the right version! :)

Oooh, it's working lovely now! :) Apart from one small thing. Because my music files are in...

F:\Music\

...and I want my backup path to be...

D:\Music\

...this puts the files in...

D:\Music\Music\

...so I tried setting the replace string to be "Music\" but this put the files in...

D:\

...This can be fixed by replacing your current line 368 with...

Code: Select all

BackupFullPathName = Replace(BackupFullPathName,PathNameReplace,"",1,1)
...so that the string is only replaced once. Hope that makes sense! :D
