Robocopy, Backing up with batch file.

Marfe
 Share

Good day!

 

I want to create a batch file to back up my save game on Monster Hunter World but I don't exactly know how batch files work.

Currently this is my batch file

 

robocopy D:\Test D:\Output

 

In the first copy it goes ok but when I try to run the batch file again it does nothing.

 

How can I delete the file on the output folder then copy again the file on the test folder.

you need to pass the /MIR flag

for example, robocopy /MIR D:\Test D:\Output

This will make the output match the source by copying any new files, updating any existing ones (if necessary), and deleting ones form the destination that no longer exist in the source.

If you can read this you're using the wrong theme.  You can change it at the bottom.

I just used xcopy instead.

 

xcopy D:\Test D:\Output /e

 

Now how can I automatically overwrite files? because if I ran the batch file again it will ask if i want to overwrite files. Is there a way to always say yes to it?

I have no experience with xcopy.  robocopy would automatically do this with the settings I gave above

I know you got it working, but someone on reddit made a bat script that backs up the save data, and is very complex.

::WRITEN BY DUXA 8/14/2018
::VERSION 1.5 UPDATED 8/18/2018
 
::WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE
:: 1 - Copy/Pasta this whole thing into a text file and end it with .bat, for example "MonsterHunterBackup.bat"
::     Edit PATH below by replacing XXXXX with your steam user ID. Just follow the path to where the game is
::     saved and you will see your ID as the name of the folder before you reach 582010 folder.
 
:: OPTIONAL: You can make Windows Scheduler run this script at whatever interval you want.
::     If CHK below is set to 1 it will only back up saves if there was an actual change to the file.
::     Alternatively you can run this script in the background while you play without scheduling it. Set TIMER=1
::     It will ask you how often you want to do backups (in minutes), then just minimize it and let it do backups
::     while you play.
 
::     If you have 7zip installed it will be used. If you have WinRar then it will be used. If you have neither
::     the standard zip will be used. The backups are stored in BACKUPPATH path below. You can change it to whatever
::     location you want. Note that a log is kept, so that you can go back and see when backups were done. The log is
::     in the same directory as the backups. Also two text files containing previous/current checksums are kept
::     there too. They are simple txt files taking up 1kb in space. They are only created if CHK is set to 1.
 
:: For any questions find me on Reddit /u/Chrushev
 
@echo off
SETLOCAL EnableDelayedExpansion
::================================CHANGE THESE AS NEEDED=====================================
 
::Location of the saves (replace XXXXX with your user ID)
set PATH=C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\userdata\67876838\582010\remote
::Location to save the backups to
set BACKUPPATH=%USERPROFILE%\Documents\Monster Hunter World Save Backups
::Log path
set LOGPATH=%BACKUPPATH%
::FLAG to do a backup only if save has changed, set to 0 if want to backup no matter what
set /a CHK=1
::If you dont want to schedule it and instead would like to use this script as something you run while you play
::in the background then set TIMER=1. It will ask you how often you want to run it (in minutes).
set /a TIMER=0
::Date format - Possible options are US, EU, YMD. Examples: US 08/17/2018 | EU 17/08/2018 | YMD 2018/08/17
set DATEFORMAT=US
::If you are not using default path for 7zip or WinRar you can change them here
::It is ok to not have either, then standard zip format will be used if thats the case
::Reasons to use 7zip - Better compression, free (WILL BE PREFERRED OVER WINRAR IF INSTALLED)
::Reasons to use WinRar - Has 5% baked in recovery in case recovery is needed
