I'm trying to write a batch file that is basically used for copying destinations. Now, I want to make it to where other people can use it without having to go in and edit the directories and destinations. Is there a way for me to write the batch file to where it prompts, asking for the directory the user would like to copy, and to ask for the drive that the user would like to copy it to?
This is what I've been using for a while now.
@echo off :: variable set backupdir="Destination" set backupcmd=xcopy /e /h /f /y /v /c /i /r /g /k /d echo. echo +++ Backing Up Data +++ echo. echo. %backupcmd% "Directory\*.*" "%backupdir%\Data" timeout /t 2 cls echo Backup Complete echo. echo. timeout /t 2 cls echo. echo +++ Now taking hidden and system attributes off of folders +++ echo. echo. echo. attrib -s -h "Destination\Data" echo. echo. timeout /t 3
And is there any way that I can improve this with using xcopy?
