[Utility] Database Setup v3.4 Released!
« on: February 20, 2014, 07:12:12 PM »
What's New?
- Added daily database auto backup option [NEW]

How to setup?
- Unzip the "Setup" folder and replace the existing one from RadioDJ directory.
- In the new Tab "Auto Backup" check the "Enable Daily Auto Backup" option, set the backup hour and if needed check the "Close To Tray" option, which will prevent to accidentally close the application.

The new version is available in downloads page under Utilities category.

PS: to close the application when the "Close to tray" is checked, right click on the tray icon and select "Exit".  :)

Thank you Marius having the daily backup function saves me having to do it manually!

I'm making quite a few changes to the DB daily with album info and years .etc so having it auto backup will help greatly.  :ok:

I'm glad that it helps!  :)
Sadly a good friend just lost it's db due a power loss and only then he realized that he doesn't have any backup made. It's a hard lesson to learn after spending so much time to edit tracks and cue points...  ::)

For advanced scheduling if needed i can also add some arguments when starting "Database Setup.exe" like "backup", in this way the application would just start, make a backup and then close and if using the windows scheduler, you could setup a more advanced timing for backups, like once a week or so.

The scheduling would be a fantastic idea along with the option to choose a backup location.
Thank you for this option, Marius.

Thanks Marius for the auto backup facility on the Database Setup and by the way it's also great that on the latest RadioDJ program release you confirmed that if you already have the latest Beta, no need to download. This saves a lot of confusion :)
Thanks for all your continued work.

It's working backed my DB up as planned at 12:00  :ok:

Just a small suggestion any chance of being able to store the SQL backup to a folder of our choice. I always keep my backups away from the windows installs so I don't lose them when & if something should go wrong but of course this is RDJ nothing does go wrong!
