Hi,
Backup script is one of older and non maintained, while MMW evolved over the years scrip hasn't followed improvements.

You will be relieved that MM5 have native backup of MM5.DB :)

WARNING! The runtime errors that have been previously mentioned, seem to be affecting the library itself. I just found out the very hard way, that when MM4 opens, and you get the error, any changes to the library are not saved upon shutdown. The only way to save any changes is to completely remove the Backup Script. This is very unfortunate, as I relied on the automatic functions of this script. I guess I'll just be routinely backing up mm.db manually!

Where can I find a complete list of masks for saving backups (via script) to a directory. I just installed on a new machine and can't seem to find the way I had it before, where it was "<Media Monkey Version Number> <Year> <Month> <Date> <Time>", and it was done with single letters, if I recall.

All references found when searching point to https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ormats/4.0 however that does not cover the specifics listed above.
Mine is: [Folder Name]\<Y>-<M>-<D> - <V>-<B>\, which outputs: 2020-05-15 - 4.1.28-1905.

V=Version B=Build

If you hover over the Output path field it will show you the letters used.

With the above mask the script will save a zip-file in G:\Backup with a name like:
MediaMonkey [version] - date - hour.minute.zip

Code: Select all

MediaMonkey [3.1.0.1256] - 2009-07-23 - 20.27.zip
I'm trying to replicate this mask, but the code is missing. Can you please repost?

Hi,
That forum topic is for third party plugin not MM native masks.

Hi,
Not sure if it is fully updated but here is internal list of masks https://www.mediamonkey.com/wiki/index. ... ask_Fields
Ya, I checked that. The masks I used before, aren't there. Unfortunately, I don't have the same string that I used before, but I do have an archive that saved as "MM_4.1.5.1719_2016-12-30_1129". It included the MM version, year, date and time.

Looking back at a post in the backup thread (viewtopic.php?f=2&t=7746&p=240656&hilit=mask#p240656), it shows masks that aren't in the list previously mentioned (ie: <Y><M><D>.<H>.<N>.

Hi guys

I can't use this script.

I found it not very stable. Sometimes it Backups, somtimes not.

Mostly it shows in the bar "Loading.... Backup.vbs". You can wait as long you want but nothing happens and MM does nothing anymore.
You have to kill the task.

But sometimes it did as it schould. I'am tiered for searching about the behaviour. Maybe it is a simple Prob. These are the settings:

Code: Select all

[MMBackup]
Auto=1
Mdbc=1
Inic=1
Scrc=1
Bakc=1
Zipc=1
Bdir=d:\_Backup\_MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey_<V>.<B> - <Y> <M> <D> - <H>_<N>_<S>\
Zdir=d:\_Backup\_MediaMonkey\MediaMonkey_<V>.<B> - <Y> <M> <D> - <H>_<N>_<S>.zip
Dlay=90

Mode=2
OnOC=0
OnTA=0
OnTC=0
OnTD=0
OnTM=0

Drive z: ist on Network


Any ideas?

There is no need for the script just backup Portable Sub-folder to your NAS. I use ZIP compression to make it smaller. It is safer than Backup Script which is not designed to work with portable installation.

Also note that MM5 have own native backup scheduler.

I went through quite a bit of this thread but I didn't see anything that comes near answering my question about this add on. I just started using this and set it up to do a back up onto my NAS. My question is, will the restore script work if it is located on the NAS? It would seem that it would need to know the path to restore from. Also, are there any issues by launching the script from the NAS unit, or any external drive for that matter?

Thanks

Hi,
That is the problem as Backup Tries to access COM Server and is not optimized for portable version. This needs to be modified within Script.

FYI why do you need backup script as when you use portable You simply Just Backup Portable folder and label it with Date?
