I had a bat calling a script in K1000 v5, but they went and changed the naming convention for version 6 which I didn't notice until we crashed a couple weeks ago.

Anyway, my script is no longer working.  I can't find instructions for backing the 1000 off to a file server here at itninja, which surprises me.

How can I get my offsite backup working again?

Thank you!

Just for info, this is what I'm trying...I'm guessing the * is causing the issue but I don't know how to get around it.

bat:
rmdir c:\k1000backup /s /q
mkdir c:\k1000backup



cls
set scrptloc=c:\

if "%1%"=="" goto usage

cd /D %1

for /F "usebackq tokens=1-3 delims=./- " %%p in (`date /t`) do mkdir %%r%%q%%p
for /F "usebackq tokens=1-3 delims=./- " %%p in (`date /t`) do cd %%r%%q%%p

echo.
echo backing up to %cd%
"%systemroot%\system32\ftp.exe -i" -s:"%scrptloc%\backup.scr"
pause
goto end

:usage
echo usage: 
echo    bkupkbox dir
echo examples:
echo    bkupkbox .
echo    bkupkbox \\server\share
echo    bkupkbox c:\

:end
cd "%scrptloc%"

Script:
open kbox1000
kbftp
getbxf
prompt
type binary
mget *.tgz
close
quit
----
Big bonus is the ability to just download just today's date.

Even using this I had to tweak my process a bit following the 6.4 upgrade. This is the Script I use differs slightly from the official instructions but this is how I got mine to copy the necessary files:

open (my K1000's IP Address)
kbftp
getbxf
prompt
type binary
mget kbox_*
close
quit

Thanks!  I didn't remember until reading the link that the dell tech did tell me they had basic names for the most current backup, making backing them up much easier than having to deal with dates in the name.   My backup ran fine, thanks!
