Release Notes

Compressed Sharepoint Backup Powershell script with sample XML configuration file.

Important !
When using the <backupdestinationmaxkeepdays> remember that the script deletes ALL .zip and .backup files on the backup location older than this number of days !

Changes from 1.1
  • Support for IIS7 backup (on Windows Server 2008 and Windows Vista SP1)
  • Adjustment to the deletion of files. Only .zip and .backup files are deleted from the backup folder. This means that full and differential backups are NOT deleted automatically anymore.

Upgrade from 1.1
There are no settings to change - just replace the spbackup.ps1 script file.

Upgrade from 1.0
There are new settings in the XML-file, so please adjust your 1.0 configuration with the additional:
  • <catastrophicbackup>
  • <catastrophicmethod>
  • <backupdestinationmaxkeepdays>

Thank you
To Henrik Sjöbjerg from Sweden for his ideas and adjustments to the script.

Reviews for this release

Excellent script that does just what it says on the box. Anyone not wishing to pay out large sums of money to secure their installations should use this. Thanks!

Awesome script, just what i needed. The only complaint i have is it doesn't delete some of the backup files that are older than the configured retention period.
