I've been able to script 7zip to archive a files or directory. I can get it to password the archive, but I'm struggling with getting the archive to a set directory and encrypting it.
Has anyone done this and would you be willing to share an example?
7z a archive -pPASSWORD x:\directory
show your command line
Thank you. That's one variant I had tried but got the following result. I have full right access to both directories.
C:\Program Files\7-Zip>7z a archive G:\Favorites* g:\test\ -pPASSWORD

Creating archive archive.7z
7-Zip cannot open file
Access is denied.
There are three directories involved.
The error indicates that the user can not
write to the directory "C:\Program Files\7-Zip";
where the file archive.7z is to be created.
Either repeat same from an elevated command prompt
or create the archive in a different directory which
the user does have write privileges.
7z a g:\archive g:\favorites\* g:\test\ -pPASSWORD
