  • Really enjoyed this episode (my first!)

    I’ve got most of this covered as i work in it but you nudged me on a few points. I was wondering what software J uses to run the automated backups to other drives as my automation is web based then i manually keep critical files inn sync.

    • Thanks! And thanks for leaving a comment 😉

      I basically use Windows Backup to schedule but then I also use an old command-line tool (although it has a GUI) called XXCopy to do quick one-click manual backups of certain drives or directories.
