Title

Insert Date and Time into backup file name

Post

I have a backup script that runs every time the file is closed that backs up the file to a USB HDD.  It works fine, except that when it backs up it overwrites the previous backup.

 

What I would like it to do is insert a timestamp into the actual backup file name so that every backup is kept.

 

I tried naming the file "backup  & Get ( CurrentDate )," or for the timestamp, but neither worked.

 

Any way to do this?

 

Thanks.
