Creating folder per date doesn't work - HELP

fixiie :

Okay so i went through the steps of this:
https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/716/3962

Although whenever i run the backup it creates its on folder with the name of the date but doesn't actually put the files in there. The files are always located outside the calendar date folder.

What am i doing wrong or is it the script that's not working? (this one: https://bvckup2.com/support/data/set-daily-destination.bat)

What is your destination device? I'm guessing it's something that doesn't support NTFS symlinks.

Try changing last line the .bat from

        rem pause

to just

        pause

This will keep the .bat console window open - check the output of the script for errors. I suspect you will see some.

These are my settings:

I can't help you with this. You will need to sort it out on your own.
