|Subject||How to zip files in multiple folders at the same tree level|
Can you help me with programming a task with automize? I have a web server with 100 or so sites on it. Each site has a user file called web4clubsite.mdb. I would like to zip all the web4clubsite.mdb files and their directory path to a single daily zip file that I can then ftp off site. I know how to do the ftp portion but I am unable to get the zip portion to include all the web4clubsite.mdb files.
1) The zip task can only start at a single directory. So, if the file for each site is in a separate folder, it will not work.
2) You could do the following:
a) Copy all the folders containing these user files to a master folder. It will be troublesome to create 100 different copy tasks, so you may want to use a single batch file, and use the dos 'copy' command there and then copy all the files/folders to the master folder.
b) run this batch file using the windows command task.
c) Zip the master folder and ftp it off site.
