I have tried to get Another Backup Program 188.8.131.52 to copy a backup to several places; E: P: etc. It always puts a c: infront of that path and I don't know what I am doing wrong? It says: Backup of ".... to "C:\P:\Backups\Database.kdb" failed. The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect. of course it is, I didn't put a C:\ in front of the P:\, where did it come from?
That's puzzling, especially since ABP works correctly for many people. My guess is that there's something wrong with your command line argument. Could you post the exact command line argument you pass to ABP?
sorry, I meant to do that last week and didn't.
"C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe\KeePass.exe" "C:\Documents and Settings\slospjam\My Documents\Personal-docs\Database.kdb" /backup.path:"\P:\Backups\"
You are correct, I totally missed that. Works great. Thanks for your patience.
Your backup path command line argument should read /backup.path:"P:\Backups\".
See the "shourtcuts" example at http://abp-keepass.sourceforge.net/Installation.html#configure
The initial backslash you coded says to Windows, "Go to the root of the current directory path." Your current directory was presumably on the C-disk. That's why Windows interpreted your path as being on the C-disk. This is standard Windows behavior, and is not something coded in ABP.
I changed my Properties to:
"C:\Program Files\KeePass Password Safe\KeePass.exe" /backup.path:"\P:\Backups\"
I don't get the error anymore, but I don't get a backup either?
thanks in advance,
Apparently you didn't understand my last post. All you had to do was to remove a single character -- the initial backslash -- from your original properties target.
