Thanks Dypsis!
I have turned off backup on exit.
I have no problems backing up on demand.
I'll take a look at your settings.
Case closed!
Thanks.

Hi,

Just installed the addon and I'm trying to back up files. It did back up the files the 1st time, but subsequent times I get the following message "Backup cancelled because output folder already exists". What am I doing wrong?

I just wanted to post some help for those who are having trouble restoring to your new MM install.

If it were not for me being an network engineer I would have never figured out how to make this work!
-In windows 10 or 7 search for Power Shell from the start menu.
-Right click the Power Shell app and select 'Run As Administrator'
-At the command prompt type: cd <Location of MM backup files> Example: (cd C:\users\user1\desktop\media monkey backup\)
-Next type .\Restore

This should get you past the VB script error
I did exactly as told in this/above post. And yet I found the same error, as when I run the 'Restore' command with admin rights from within Windows Explorer.

How do I use the Backup 6.0 script?

I just installed. Picking up a new computer this afternoon, so I want to make sure that MM is backed up to dropbox. But I have no idea how to make that happen! Struck out with MM, so I installed this script. But now.... ?????

Thanks for some steps to follow!

Is this supposed to work with the latest MM4 and Windos 10? Because it doesn't do anything here.

I started getting this problem out of the blue. I had changed no settings, made sure I hadn't missed an update. I updated to the latest MMW beta 4.1.25.1894 and it's the same.

Hi,
Are you using Portable MMW?

Hi,
That is the problem as Backup Tries to access COM Server and is not optimized for portable version. This needs to be modified within Script.

FYI why do you need backup script as when you use portable You simply Just Backup Portable folder and label it with Date?

I went through quite a bit of this thread but I didn't see anything that comes near answering my question about this add on. I just started using this and set it up to do a back up onto my NAS. My question is, will the restore script work if it is located on the NAS? It would seem that it would need to know the path to restore from. Also, are there any issues by launching the script from the NAS unit, or any external drive for that matter?

Thanks

There is no need for the script just backup Portable Sub-folder to your NAS. I use ZIP compression to make it smaller. It is safer than Backup Script which is not designed to work with portable installation.

Also note that MM5 have own native backup scheduler.

Hi guys

I can't use this script.

I found it not very stable. Sometimes it Backups, somtimes not.

Mostly it shows in the bar "Loading.... Backup.vbs". You can wait as long you want but nothing happens and MM does nothing anymore.
You have to kill the task.

But sometimes it did as it schould. I'am tiered for searching about the behaviour. Maybe it is a simple Prob. These are the settings:

Code: Select all

[MMBackup]
Auto=1
Mdbc=1
Inic=1
Scrc=1
Bakc=1
Zipc=1
Bdir=d:\_Backup\_MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey_<V>.<B> - <Y> <M> <D> - <H>_<N>_<S>\
Zdir=d:\_Backup\_MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey_<V>.<B> - <Y> <M> <D> - <H>_<N>_<S>.zip

Mode=2
OnOC=0
OnTA=0
OnTC=0
OnTD=0
OnTM=0

Drive z: ist on Network


Any ideas?

Masks

Where can I find a complete list of masks for saving backups (via script) to a directory. I just installed on a new machine and can't seem to find the way I had it before, where it was "<Media Monkey Version Number> <Year> <Month> <Date> <Time>", and it was done with single letters, if I recall.

All references found when searching point to https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ormats/4.0 however that does not cover the specifics listed above.
