    Hi all,
    DB_Backup 1.0 is ready. It has two new functionalities:

    1. you can use multiple backup destinations
    DB_Backup.Destination.1=...
    DB_Backup.Destination.2=...
    ...
    up to 32.

    2. Environmental variables in those parameters are expanded. This may not seem important at the first sight, but imagine the followin:
    Have an .ini file like:
    DB_Backup.Destination.1=%BACKUPDEST1%
    DB_Backup.Destination.2=%BACKUPDEST2%
    DB_Backup.Destination.3=%BACKUPDEST3%

    and then create a start.cmd:

    SET BACKUPDEST1=c:\Program Files\KeePass\
    SET BACKUPDEST2=d:\SecondDiskOnComputerB
    SET BACKUPDEST3=G:\USBDriveonComputerB
    start KeePass.exe
    ==============================

    Now this start.cmd can be different on each of your computer and thus set the BACKUPDEST[NUM] parameters differently.

    You can as well have these variables set as user or system variables.

      1. Cannot use logical paths for backup, e.g. "My Documents" is not a valid path for the backup file even though the database is there.
      2. The backup file should have the backup date as part of the filename.
      3. Only creates a single backup file. It would be useful to be able to specify how many backups you want to retain.

      cheers, Paul

      Hi,

      1. "My Documents" - is really not a path. I don't know af any application, that would be able to use such a PATHs. If you right click on "My documents" you'll see the real path behind that.
      2. I don't see the need for that, as you have the date in the file's properties (last access, last modify, etc)
      3. This is being called housekeeping. I am willing to implement something like that, but very likely not in version 1.1, but sometimes later...

      "My Documents" - is really not a path, but unfortunately Windoze treats it as such. It is more a nuisance than a problem.

      cheers, Paul
