Scheduled Backups

Recommended Posts

I am trying to create a scheduled backup for every day of the week. Does anyone have a sample script I can use to model after?

You've posted in the Scriptmaker forum. That makes me think that you're not referring to FMServer backups.

There is no way to write a script to create backups. You need to close FM, and backup the file. Or, buy FMS.

Thanks for the info. That seems a little raunchy...

I was able to create a simple script that makes a copy of the database every 5th time you exit. Our network server creates a backup every night but I thought there would be a script to backup my FMP database every day as well.

There has to be a way to schedule a backup for FMP?

I'd hope that others will chime in. You're using a FM database from a shared volume on a fileserver? This is not recommended. It should be hosted on a dedicated FMS.

And, if you and others are multi-launching this database, your Save As Copy backup will fail if anyone else is in the database, if it works at all.

Raunchy...hardly.
