Dude, just add "C:/" at the beginning of the path names and it works regardless of file location. Also, what language are you using? If you're using Java, you can just use this method:

public static String getPath()
{
String OS = System.getProperty("os.name").toUpperCase();
if (OS.toUpperCase().contains("WIN"))
return System.getenv("APPDATA") + "/roaming/.minecraft";
else if (OS.toUpperCase().contains("MAC"))
return System.getProperty("user.home") + "/Library/Application Support/.minecraft";
else if (OS.toUpperCase().contains("NUX"))
return System.getProperty("user.home") + "/.minecraft";
return System.getProperty("user.dir");
}

You should learn a more useful language... Don't mean to be rude, but batch is mostly just a toy for people who want to show off in front of people who have less computer experience, and if you were willing to learn it enough to make that you can probably sit through some Java or C++ tutorials.

Ya it's a bit much to setup, kinda defeats the purpose, I can go do it myself just as quick.
The program I'm writing does everything for you and even packs the data.

not that much to set up but you need to be running windows on c drive you just download the program and it makes a file called save backup on desktop that is where it will put everything and the instructions do seem complex but they are not

It's not complex as it's just not very forgiving and it really doesn't do anything you can't yourself with 1 click in winrar/winzip. If you don't have win on ur C drive, or you .minecraft folder isn't on the c drive.

source code package: https://www.dropbox.com/s/a4r3612dmiouw7h/backup.zip
 includes 4 files:
- the zip file you get from download button
- the unzipped exe file
- the icon used
- the source code batch file

it was not this that did it, it does not have any commands in its source code to do so, i am uploading the source code soon so you can check yourself.

no offense, but it would be easier to just copy my world and paste it elsewhere.

it is annoying to always go to appdata and copy and paste it somewhere else, it might be hard to setup this program but once you did it it is easier to backup your worlds

I've made my own version. It's extremely simple and doesn't need much to learn it. Just select, backup, and go :) I just need your permission to upload it because I don't want mods going nuts ._.
