Here's the situation. I have ~16 huge Excel spreadsheets, ~10 Word documents and a few text files that are very important for my work (not IM-related). These are not static, data is changed on a regular basis.
I recently had a hard drive crash, and if I hadn't emailed all these files to myself the night before, I would have lost the data.
Now, my hard drive was full of movies, pictures, music, etc., most of which was not practical to back up. Here's the question: how do I write a batch file or create an automated process that would back up only the important files? Oh, since these spreadsheets and documents are on different topics, they are in different folders.
I am thinking some sort of batch file that would zip up these important files every night and upload it to a server where my sites are hosted? But I don't know how to do this, or perhaps there's an easier way?
