There is an easy way to backup your daily work! I usually backup the directory with my application once a day.
I have now automated this process so that the backup file (ZIP-file) is stored in a subdirectory "backup". The filename is determined automatically and is made from the date in ISO format, for example the backup of February 24 2004 becomes "20040224.ZIP". Further the backup is extremely fast! You can for example run the backup program in each directory with valuable data!
The basis is the free XZIP.DLL component (see www.XStandard.com for download). I modified the code from one of the threads on this forum in order to make the code backup the way subscribed above. You can copy the code below and paste it into a prg, which can be used in a project, compiled, etc..
