Archive Database

Saves a copy of the XTenison database at the specified file location.


archive database at (file, where you want the database saved to)


  • very good for making automated backups of the database to an external or network drive.
  • if you specify a name that already exists then a number will be appended to the name until it finds a free slot, so if you copy your database to an external drive every night it's not necessary to do a lot of work in the script to come up with a unique name, you might just archive database at “:Volumes:MyDisk:XTension Database Backup” and let it manage the addition of 001, 002, etc. You will have to go in there and delete old stuff once in a while though or the drive will fill up.
