[Script] Automatic Backup of savedata/etc on startup
« on: April 29, 2015, 06:28:47 am »
Automatic Data Backup for your GCW-Zero
Here it is: Something to keep those save files handy for possible crashes or semi-bricks.
Never lose your data again! (unless your SD card decides to die at the same time...  :'( unfortunate.

The Backup script and an example configuration file, as well as a README can be located here.
Please enjoy!
NOTE: Logging is enabled by default.
You can disable it by change enableLogging=true to enableLogging=false in the S99auto-backup.sh script.

Why did I make it?
I was frustrated with losing hours of gametime when my GCW-Zero became soft-bricked due to stupidity on my part with incorrectly flashing a build of the kernel and NOT remembering to backup my data first. So, I decided to make a quick script to backup what I need. After making the short script, I thought others might really like to have something like this. However, the script was not ready for public use, since not everyone knows how to edit scripts, and I had to do a bit of extra work to get the script ready for public use. I changed the script to use a configuration file for the folders instead of having embedded names. Plus, I added logging to timestamped log files as an option.

Just thought I'd include video for a kick in the pants, and a funk like no other.
