Running with powershell

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Running with powershell

Post by MajorLEN »

Hi Guy's

I hope someone can help me with this issue.

I am trying to run, import a profile and then run the profile via a powershell script on a remote PC. I have used their page which states all the commands and have put together a script.

However when i run it, it will start, import the profile but then i get a failure when it runs. It then try's to open a log file on failure but it just opens Edge??

This is the script i threw together: -

Code: Select all

echo "Setup starting"
	sleep 3
echo "Starting SyncBackFree"
	& 'C:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackFree\SyncBackFree.exe'
	sleep 3
	$wshell = New-Object -ComObject; 
	sleep 5
	sleep 3
echo "Importing eManuals profile"
	& 'C:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackFree\SyncBackFree.exe' -importprofile "C:\Scripts\eManuals.sps"
	sleep 2
#echo "Restarting SyncBackFree"
	& 'C:\Program Files (x86)\2BrightSparks\SyncBackFree\SyncBackFree.exe' eManuals -i
I have to set the powershell script to send an 'n' keystroke as after its installed, on the first run, it displays a message about going to a help page which is really annoying.

I had raised a ticket but they wouldn't help as its the free version and i need to upgrade for extra support.

Has anyone else had any experience with running this from script?
