FossaMail backup tool

Postby Moonchild » Sun Apr 06, 2014 7:56 pm

To download: see http://www.fossamail.org/backuptool.shtml

This tool will help you back up FossaMail profiles (settings and e-mail). It is a simple tool and doesn't have much in terms of advanced features, but should give you a quick and easy way to create backups of your FossaMail mailboxes and customizations.

Current release version 1.0.0.7, which is the first public release of this tool, based closely on the Pale Moon profile backup tool.
More basic details about the tool's operation are found in the thread for the Pale Moon tool, since it works pretty much exactly the same.

When I change the backup location it is saved to the ini file (which by the way is called pmbackup.ini (?)). But the next time I start the program the location is reset to the default location. That is annoying, especially because the default backup directory is created every time.

Thanks, I'll have a look. Probably forgot to change an occurrence of the file name in one of the scripts.

Updated to 1.0.1.12 - this should fix the settings issue :)

Updated to 1.0.2.13 to adopt the same file name improvements incorporated in the Pale Moon backup tool. it will now add leading zeroes to dates, and handle >10 backups in a single day properly.

Updated to 1.0.2.16 to fix a path error, causing the tool to try and backup everything in the user's data, not just FossaMail data (Oops!)
