Ya, I checked that. The masks I used before, aren't there. Unfortunately, I don't have the same string that I used before, but I do have an archive that saved as "MM_4.1.5.1719_2016-12-30_1129". It included the MM version, year, date and time.

Looking back at a post in the backup thread (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7746&p=240656&hilit=mask#p240656), it shows masks that aren't in the list previously mentioned (ie: <Y><M><D>.<H>.<N>.

Hi,
That forum topic is for third party plugin not MM native masks.

With the above mask the script will save a zip-file in G:\Backup with a name like:
MediaMonkey [version] - date - hour.minute.zip

Code: Select all

MediaMonkey [3.1.0.1256] - 2009-07-23 - 20.27.zip
I'm trying to replicate this mask, but the code is missing. Can you please repost?

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.
Mine is: [Folder Name]\<Y>-<M>-<D> - <V>-<B>\, which outputs: 2020-05-15 - 4.1.28-1905.

V=Version B=Build

If you hover over the Output path field it will show you the letters used.

WARNING! The runtime errors that have been previously mentioned, seem to be affecting the library itself. I just found out the very hard way, that when MM4 opens, and you get the error, any changes to the library are not saved upon shutdown. The only way to save any changes is to completely remove the Backup Script. This is very unfortunate, as I relied on the automatic functions of this script. I guess I'll just be routinely backing up mm.db manually!

Hi,
Backup script is one of older and non maintained, while MMW evolved over the years scrip hasn't followed improvements.

You will be relieved that MM5 have native backup of MM5.DB :)
