Backup your files with WinRar

A while ago (actualy, three and a half years), I've made a backupscript with winrar.  With these four files and your windows task scheduler, you've a full featured backup system, producing rar-files per run. The incremental version makes use of the archive flag of the filesystem. The full backup justs proces all the files. Backuplist.txt contains a list of all the folders to include. Exludefile.txt contains all the folders inside the included folders to exclude.

Incremental.cmd

"c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe" a -ac -ao -ep2 -os -ow -IBCK -inul -r -agYY-MM-DD -x@B:\backup\excludefile.txt B:\backup\incremental- @B:\backup\backuplist.txt
REM -ac clear archive flag on files
REM -ao for archive flag only files
REM -ag[format] to include date in filename
REM -ep2 Store full file paths
REM -OS - save NTFS streams
REM -OW - process file security information

Full.cmd

"c:\program files\winrar\winrar.exe" a -ac -ep2 -os -ow -r -IBCK -inul -agYY-MM-DD -x@B:\backup\excludefile.txt B:\backup\full- @B:\backup\backuplist.txt
REM -ac clear archive flag on files
