You want to create back-up based on date. I Think something like D/Folder/back-up <date>, you want. 

If so, I think I can help. Get the Vice Versa help file from:

Look for Folder variables there. Set a command for <date> to current date. 

You’ll get the result.

You can also get manual results from this site:

Hope these will help you.

Hi Timothy,

Having your back up with date is a good way of organizing it, while using 3rd party software can help you do that you also can do it by creating a windows batch file or setting your Software to back up having the date as file name.

1. Option create batch file with this code:  mkdir back_up%date% then you can read through this tutorial to extract characters on how you would want the date to look like, say 05012013.

2. Option: Look for Folder variables or Folder options on your database software then select < date > and this will expand automatically to the current date.

However you have to do the 2nd option when you do back up.
