    Default Unable to open .zip for write access

    I have the following script, which selects all files in a folder and copies them to a zip file. The script works fine the first time. However, when I rerun the same script, I get Unable to open .zip for write access errors.

    What am I missing?
    Also, is there a way to override the prompt to create the .zip file in order to run the script with the /silent switch?


    SCRIPT
    log normal "G:\Backup Beyond Compare\Scripts\Quicken_Zip.log"
    expand all
    select left.all.files
    copyto "G:\Backup Beyond Compare\FTP RemoteBackup Staging\Q.zip"

    Hello,

    option confirm:yes-to-all will answer yes to a dialog, but what does the dialog say exactly if you remove /silent? We do not have a "Create Zip?" dialog.

    I also tested the same script multiple times. With /silent, we remove any error dialogs for troubleshooting, so I suggest removing it for now. When running multiple times on the same archive, we are able to append into it.

    Are you using the latest BC3.x release (3.3.10)?

    Hello,

    Sorry, this was an issue with BC2's script and archive support. We fixed this in BC3 and going forward. For BC2, you'll need to add the %date% variable to your script name to give each a unique name, then join them together or delete the older as a separate step.

    Also, all BC2.x updates are free for 2.x users. You can download 2.5.3 from our website if you would like to run the most recent BC2 release:
