Wildcards in Toucan

Hello! First post! (be kind :))

I recently installed Toucan as a Portable app so that i could create an easy way for a customer to back up their files to an external hard disk.

I created a Daily script + backup and a Weekly script + backup (plus some supporting batch files, but that's for another discussion). The Daily script does an Incremental backup while the Weekly script would first Move the previous backup files to a backup store before proceeding to take a new Full backup.


Move "@drive@\backup.user\BaseFile.zip" "@drive@\backup.store\BaseFile.@date@.zip"
Move "@drive@\backup.user\*.zip" "@drive@\backup.store\"
Backup "Weekly-backup"

My script failed since it couldn't move *.zip from @drive@\backup.user to @drive@\backup.store\ and i suppose it's because Tucan doesn't understand wildcards. Am i very wrong? Is there an easy fix?

br,

Hi,

sorry for taking so long to reply, you are correct, Toucan doesn't support wildcards in this fashion, hopefully when the new scripting features get added this will be possible though!
