Sorry for the dumb question, but I have a Windows XP box we use for a 'server' in the LAN network to store various important files. We have 2 hard drives (1 TB each) and want to use the second one for a daily backup, just in case the first one fails. I'm thinking of running a scheduled batch file, something like this:
for /f "tokens=1-5 delims=/ " %%d in ("%date%") do set BackupDir=e:\%%e-%%f-%%g\ mkdir %BackupDir% xcopy /s /-y C:\SourceSafe %BackupDir%
The files are 4 GB in total so it'll take more than half a year before the hard disk runs out of space.
I am wondering if there are potential problems with this way. Thank you.
