The following DOS batch file copies the contents of your “Anki2” in C: to any folder of your choice. Within that folder, each run creates a new folder with today’s date, such as: “2022_03_24”
sd = source directory
dd = destination directory
As usual for backups, CLOSE Anki first. Maybe a pro can add a line to close Anki. But it needs to be an orderly procedure, you can’t simply kill the process - as in Task Manager.
If you run the prog twice on the same day, I suppose it will simply overwrite whatever was previously there, so there might not be any harm done. It’s up to you.
I only understand the first few lines of the prog. If anyone wants to provide a translation - please do.
Remember to edit your Username in third line: Set “sd…”
