How to ROLLBACK? (Restore PCEquip)

Post by Cygnet » Thu Mar 26, 2020 6:47 am

Hello guys, i have a saving system on cycles of 60 minutes, and each save, as everyone knows, creates a new *.txt with data stuff, and make older data files *.bak, how do i restore the .bak to older versions? I mean, if its overything each one hours? Notice that "older versions" from file properties are not showing anything.
Thanks, Cygnet.

If you want to restore previous save, rename .bak file to .txt
If you want to have saves of each day - you have to think, how to make copies of data/ folder.

Well, for people with the same problem:
First i noticed that all i have is one backup each system save, so, i decided to findout some third party software who could help me to backup the files each time it has a saveState or on a programed time.
Found a software called SyncBackPro and paid a few bucks to activate it, cuz free version won't work on windows server.
Setup it, and its running, doesn't had to use it yet, but, make a few tests and its working like a charm so far (2 days now)
hope it helps someone!

Just as a heads up i think Yukiko made a tool to do backups of datafiles: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=6221

I haven't used it or anything but i know its out there.

Thank you! Seems very good, and usefull! I'll give it a try later 'cuz the one im using its consumind a f***load of my VPS hardware, actually the one im using its backuping each 1 hour, i'll just try to edit since Yukiko's one its opensource.

Thank you guys!
