How do I backup QVD files 4 times a day to keep multiple versions?

Hello,

Currently working on a requirement, where I need to create a folder with folder name as todays date. Within the folder create sub folders with date and timestamp.  For example the 1st backup of qvds needs to happen at 2 am, then the folder name would be todaysdate_02hr. and another backup that happens at 6 pm will create a folder wit the name  062622_06..so on

I need to back up multiple versions of the qvds for that day in this format:

 

  06272022->

                           06272022_02

                           06272022_08

 

so on

Hi @SMalli  if you plan on using batch script to back up your files this should help 

How to backup using batch files 

You can also use a different approach and have the QVD's back up upon reload with the Execute command in the Script Editor see below as examples

For /f "tokens=1-2 delims=/:" %%a in ('time /t') do (set mytime=%%a%%b)

xcopy "folderpath\w*.qvd" "destinationfolderpath\" /Y

Hi,

You should use Windows batch file commands to create folder and move qvds. you would find lots of suggestions on google.
