Subject: Backup script

 

Hi Guys (and Girls),

 

I recently started using subversion in our company due to the many problems
we are having with VSS. It is such a great program, you guys did an
excellent job! Anyways, after doing a few google searches, I was unable to
find any sort of backup scripts that didn't require me to install python
(the more components I have to install, the harder a sell it is to
management :-(). Since we're a MSFT shop, I went ahead and wrote a very
quick vbscript that allows me to perform nightly backups without taking the
database offline (I'm using the Berkley DB). I haven't explored the site
long enough to find out where to post this, but I'd like to share it with
anyone who was in the same situation as I was. So feel free to use it, or
discard it. And thanks for such a wonderful alternative to the crap I have
been stuck with for five years!

 

Regards,

David Cali

 

 

PS: this message was returned to me. If you feel there is no need for a vbs
backup solution, don't worry about it. If you would like a copy of the
script, please give me a suggestion on how to send it.
