    Thanks.

    Sorry for the speed, I'm try to speed up the next version. Also the next version will only backup new and changed files "if you tell it". I'm also working a scheduler for it "say 3:00am backup everyday"

    Anyone Else Tried it, what do you Think.
    If Not, give it a Try "especially if you don't have any Backup Software"

    Hi Clarence,

    To avoid to backup the ROM's databases, use the ROM property of the DatabaseInfo class.The ROM property returns True if the database it is applied to resides in a read-only area of the storage heap; it returns False otherwise.

    Sorry I have no clude. How would I use this Property.



    Private Sub BackupHere_Click()
    dim db as new DatabaseInfo

    'Data for files
    If db.FindFirstByTypeCreator("","") Then


    Do

    'checks to see if it's a ROM File
    If not db."Rom Property????" Then

    'copy the current database in the current directory
    CopyDatabaseToVFS currentVolume.Reference ,db,szPath & "/" & db.Name


    'Echo to Screen
    fldSelection.Text="Backup " & db.Name


    else
    'Next File
    Loop While db.FindNext

    End If
    'Refresh the file list
    RefreshFileList
    End Sub

    Your Software Rocks.

    Hi Clarence,
    Your Software Rocks.
    Thanks!!!

    Just test the ROM property (True | False) for each DatabaseInfo instance:

    Code:
    Private Sub mnuBackupHere_Click()
      dim db as new DatabaseInfo
      'Enumerate all the databases in memory
      If db.FindFirstByTypeCreator("","") Then
        Do
          'copy the current database in the current directory
          if not db.ROM then  '<--- if not in ROM ----------------
            CopyDatabaseToVFS currentVolume.Reference ,db,szPath & "/" & db.Name
            'Inform user
            fldSelection.Text="Backup " & db.Name
          End if
          'Proceed next database
        Loop While db.FindNext
      End If
      'Refresh the file list
      RefreshFileList
    End Sub

    Thanks

    I just found all the Attribute of Database class Method in the Help file. Your help files are well laid out. I how just located all the Classes and Method I plan to use to complete the Backup Program.

    What to Come

    The backup function will check to see is the file is already on the card
    If it is, "There Modified Date are comparded, and the Newer of the Two is choosen"

    I want to register the Program with the alarm function to allow Timed Backups "say 4:00am"

    I also want the Program to prompt you Which directory you want to backup to Using a GUI

    Thanks JPA

    Hi Clarence,

    Glad it helps.

    I want to register the Program with the alarm function to allow Timed Backups "say 4:00am"
    Yep, that's usefull. Take a look at the CountDown sample that show how to manage alarms. As the Treo had a keyguard system, you'll also need to manage it. See the following howto code:
    Treo 600: How to manage Keyguard
    You can either do the backup without any UI (a kind of silent mode) or unlock (if needed) the keyguard, display a countdown (say 10sec) that allow the user to cancel the backup, and if the user don't cancel it, do the backup, then restore the keyguard's previous state. It can be usefull, as the user may want to delay the backup if he plan to dial immediately for example.

    I also want the Program to prompt you Which directory you want to backup to Using a GUI
    Yep! also useful! Take a look at the VFSExplorer sample that use a Treeview (based on a Grid object). You'll need to modify the AddFiles procedure (just comment the line that add the files, as you just need the folders).

    Code:
    ...
      'the current file is a not a directory, it's a file
      'Set nn = tv.Add(n,tvChild,0,szName,False,tvDoc,tvDoc)  '<-- Rem this line
    ....
