To back up the Daminion catalog(s) on schedule, follow the steps below:
1 – Download this archive
2 – Unzip it into the folder where the backups are to be stored. Please remember that the folder should be local. You can later share it on the network or use a script to copy it to another location.
3 – Edit the “backup_config.bat” file as shown on the screenshot below:
4 – Open Task Scheduler or another scheduling tool for your preferences and create a new task.
Actions > New > Start a program > Browse > Specify a path to the file “Backup Daminion Catalog.bat”
Specify also where to start the .bat file – it should be the same folder where the file “Backup Daminion Catalog.bat” is located.
5 – In the Triggers tab set up a schedule – daily\weekly and at what time.
6 – Once everything is set up, try to manually run the task from the Task Scheduler > Right-click > Run to check if it is executed.
Keep an eye on the first scheduled automatic backup – check the folder with the backup files once the automatic backup is executed to verify is the backups were created.
