Dropbox Support

If you have used the default Dropbox settings by having the Folder inside your username and not anywhere else this will enable Dropbox support.

The Dropbox Option copies over the backed up files that are always located at C:Minecraft_Backups over to C:UsersUSERNAMEDropbox (example: C:UsersSimonDropbox)

Overview



Today I wasn't really doing anything, and had seen that someone on Twitter was looking for the easier way to backup their Minecraft Files and Folders. So I decided to do something about it. Out came Visual Studio and from that came "Minecraft Backup". Although not named awesomely, it does exactly what it says on the tin. After a few hours of coding, and testing and then coding again. I think it's finally done.

It doesn't really have many features to be honest, it allows you to specify what you want to backup, and the option to delete your super-huge TGA files to save some space.

Because I'm a nice guy, I'd never consider charging for this, and it's also open source so if you want, jump on over to the BitBucket Repo and you can download the source. I'd love your comments, thoughts and possibly feature integration. I'm happy to continue developing it and adding more features to it, I just can't really think of anything else at the moment.

Hello, may I please have the source? I would like to study your code for the better of my Vb.Net education. PM me if you are willing to allow me to have it.

Thanks

P.S. The reason why I am asking is because the link to your source in bitbucket is broken.

Download link ends up at a fatal php error:

Fatal error: Cannot redeclare wp_dlm_get_total_downloads() (previously declared in /nfs/c06/h02/mnt/97267/domains/themineville.com/html/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/shortcodes.php:27) in/nfs/c06/h02/mnt/97267/domains/themineville.com/html/wp-content/plugins/download-monitor/shortcodes.php on line 29

Any chance you could post this somewhere else?

Just had my entire home stash with multiple large boxes full of diamond blocks and equivalent exchange stuff eaten by lava...@#$@#...time to start backing up I guess. Will need a break from minecraft to start over from scratch.
