Crypto Wallet BackupSomeone asked me for some more features for the Crypto Wallet Backup program, so I’ve got a quick update with some of those.

This download requires the previous version. It’s just a console version that you can use in the Windows Task Scheduler for scheduled backups. It doesn’t do any zipping or encryption though – just the same basic backup as the Crypto Wallet Backup program.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD CONSOLE VERSION

The ZIP file includes the source code and the program.

Just unzip it and put it in the same folder as your GUI version. (Link to that above.)

It’s a console application and takes 1 argument: a file with a list of files to backup (1 per line). That’s the same as the backup-file-list.txt file that the GUI version creates automatically for you. So, if you want, you can copy or rename that file and manually add files.

Here’s a screenshot of the output:

crypto-wallet-backup-console

Ignore the “W” characters – they’re the slashes on my system as I’ve got it set to Korean.

So, to use the command line with a file, you’d type something like this:

CryptoWalletBackupConsole.exe file.txt

It reads the file for the list of files that you want to back up, then creates the same kind of folder as the original GUI version of the program, and copies all those files there as a backup for you. The console outputs the names of all the files it backs up.

I’ll try to get more added to it, e.g. zipping the backup, allowing for encryption, etc., as time allows.

Cheers,
