We at Orontes Projects are using Project Packer to backup our own projects.  


This is an example for our backup of the source files of this User Guide:


Archive Tool Example


There are 3 lines in the listbox:


k:\documents\project packer - user guide\project packer user guide.hmxz: this is our main project file. When we add this line the next time we like to make a backup, all the other settings will be restored from the settings database file. See also: add file(s).

k:\documents\project packer - user guide\*.* /S: this line adds all the other files in the base directory and sub-directories. See also: add with wildcards.

c:\Project_Packer_Workshop\*.* /S: with this line, we also add the Project Packer Workshop files. See also: add with wildcards.


The other controls:
