The biggest problem I have with backing things up to externals on the fly is saving the relative path info.

Label the volume of the drive "Backup" and compile this code. Make a shortcut to your executable in %APPDATA%\Microsoft\Windows\SendTo

NOTE: This does not handle multi-select, but it does handle entire folders.

Code:

if @equal(@volinfo(d,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,d:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(e,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,e:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(f,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,f:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(g,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,g:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(h,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,h:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(i,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,i:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(j,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,j:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(k,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,k:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(l,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,l:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(m,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,m:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(n,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,n:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(o,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,o:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(p,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,p:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(q,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,q:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(r,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,r:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(s,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,s:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(t,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,t:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(u,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,u:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(v,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,v:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(w,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,w:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(x,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,x:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(y,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,y:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end

if @equal(@volinfo(z,n),Backup)
file copy,%1,z:\@strdel(%1,1,3)
end


Super simple, super useful hack together code. It could have been coded more eloquently but "Ain't nobody got time for that!"

As an added bonus, this handles multiple backup volumes at once. One and done.

For "Move to Backup" same code, but add

Code:

file delete,%1


at the end.

you could also make that like a 5 line loop or less by adding a-z in a string and then move the char pos within the string by 1 each loop until you reach z. But yeah, nice for sure.
