    Does anyone have any suggestions on how to code a batch file for backup?
    I would like to xcopy everything from D drvie into G drive without
    requesting for any confirmation on overwriting any file.
    Does anyone have any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    Your first task is to learn the difference between Usenet and chat
    rooms.

    Your second task is to read the responses you already received, some
    more than five hours prior to this repeat posting.

    Were the responses all in this NG?

    If so, maybe it's time for me to find a new NG provider.

    I'm getting this NG via Individual.Net and, besides the OP, have
    only seen the two responses below.

    I also read this group through individual.net, and I've seen at least 8
    responses to your multiple postings. I don't think the problem is the
    server.

    You mean Eric's multiple postings, right? Besides this one I've
    only posted once.

    Sorry, I thought you were the same guy who had altered his nym. I've
    seen all his multiple postings plus all the replies. I think all
    messages are getting propagated and problem is on his end.

    I predict he won't ever figure out how to come back and see the
    answers.
