I've created a simple bat file to backup a working NW Drive to an External USB drive, which is connected to the computer on which that bat file will run.
There is about 8 GB or so on the drive to BU and it runs every night (automatically via Windows Task Scheduler).
My main concern is that I've set this up correctly to get everything needed.
To avoid re-copying things unnecessarily, I used the /d switch...thinking that will copy any NEW file (files that did not exist before the last bu) and then only re-copy files that have changed since the last BU.
(I'm using this method to be as "low impact" as possible....want to avoid the overhead of special BU software just for a straight copy)
Q: Does the below xcopy command do this correctly? AND....if it runs consistently every night...will it keep everything up to date.....or, logically, do I need to do a COMPLETE BU once a week?
Also....should I include /V as well to be safe?
xcopy S:\*.* /s/c/d E:\ServerBU\ /y
Thanks very much.
