I use Total Commander every day and it has an useful option to backup the entire folder.
Usually I’ve done this way:
- clicked ALT + F5 (poped up a window to compress files)
- I gave the name of the archive by adding a date at the beginning of the file
- clicked OK
- I’ve moved created ZIP file into a directory called “backup” where I kept all archives
It wasn’t a very convenient solution, which is why I created a simple .bat script that makes the work easier.
