Hi. First, thanks for the script.
I'm using MM 3.2.1.1297, Backup script 5.7. OS: Windows Vista
How do I restore from the backup? Do I just double click on the file Restore.vbs?
Because it didn't work for me. Says action denied, Code: 800A0046.
Sure would appreciate some help...thanks...MB

Yeah, that's the idea. It might be a permissions thing, or maybe some anti-virus-type software might be blocking it.

Personally, I prefer to restore everything manually. Check out page 41 of this thread for a few posts on this topic.
Good luck. I hope that helps.

Yes, I tried, but I can't find where the damn database is. I have a Spanish Vista, and it'd appear that it isn't just a question of translating! Even doing a search revealed no results. I feel like a dumb dumb!

Are you looking for the backed up database? Or are you looking for where the database needs to be restored to?

In Windows 7/Vista, the database should be restored to "C:\Users\XXXX\AppData\Local\MediaMonkey".
The backed up database can be found in whatever path you specify as the "Output Path" in the Backup Script settings.

The original database. And that's just it. In Spanish vista, I can't find anything resembling AppData. I looked in all the folders under C>users>xxxx, but don't see MediaMonkey. :oops:

NOTE: If you cannot see these files, it likely means that you need to enable viewing of hidden files/folders.
In Windows explorer, go to Tools > Folder options. Select the View tab and check "Show hidden files and folders". The folders and files listed should now be accessible.

If you run this script then the database location is displayed on the settings screen.

Don't forget your AppData folder is probably hidden by default. You have to go into folder settings and select "show hidden folders."

Yes, you're right, it was hidden - I should have thought of that in the first place! :oops: Thanks for your time & effort. Much obliged. :D :lol:

Hi,

This is my first post so I want first to thank you for all your scripts . Tremendous job indeed !

I would like to mention two little problems :

1) in the playlist export with Mode : nested.
It is caused by a little error in ABackup.vbs at line 951 : in the recursive call to the GeneratePath routine,
the first parameter is missing. The current call is GeneratePath(fso.GetParentFolderName(pFolderPath))
and it should be GeneratePath(fso,fso.GetParentFolderName(pFolderPath)).

2) if the Output path text field is empty.
It is caused by a little typo error in Backup.vbs on line 1208 : you must replace Edt.Text by Edt4.Text.


I also have a little request . Could it be possible to modify the GetIniPath routine so that it does not make any
assumption about the database name (there is no other reference to MM.DB in the script code).

I think you just need to replace line 1557 in Backup.vbs (and line 837 in ABackup.vbs) by the following lines :

Code: Select all

 
loc=SDB.Database.Path
pos=InStrRev(loc,"\")
GetIniPath=Left(loc,pos)&"MediaMonkey.ini"
Thank you
