    Rar archive with date backup script (.bat)

    Just made this and thought I'd post it in case anyone found any use for it.

    Backs up a drive to a rar archive, and appends the current date and time to the filename. Requires the rar archiver cli util to be in PATH or with the batch file.

    Code:
    @echo off
    REM Script to backup the share to a date/time stamped archive
    REM By R.R
    cls
    set year=%date:~6,4%
    set yr=%date:~8,2%
    set month=%date:~3,2%
    set day=%date:~0,2%
    set hour=%time:~0,2%
    set hour=%hour: =0%
    set min=%time:~3,2%
    set sec=%time:~6,2%
    
    echo Backing up ...
    rar a -r backup[%day%%month%%yr%-%hour%%min%].rar r:\*.*
    creates a file like : backup[080109-1443].rar

    Dunno if someones already made something like this but thought I'd just fire it up here anyway.
