I've re-written the documentation, because it's easier to read on here than it is to read the text document:

To change the directory in which you want to backup your saves, change C:\cyclods\ in line 4 to the path of a folder on your hard drive. For example:

C:\Documents and Settings\Default User\Desktop\Cyclods\

To have this script copy saves from the same drive each time without prompting you, replace line 11 with the following, where G: is the name of the drive:

set var= G:

To change which folders the script goes to to look for your saves, add two lines, one between :b and :c and one between :c and :d that look like the following, where \XXXXXXX\ is the folder on your MicroSD.

copy %var%:\XXXXXXX\*.sav %var2%
copy %var%:\XXXXXXX\*.rts %var2%

So if you want the script to copy saves from the \games\ds\ folder, you would add these lines:

copy %var%:\games\ds\*.sav %var2%
copy %var%:\games\ds\*.rts %var2%

To tell the script to copy .nds files, add a line between :d and :e and add a line as follows, where \XXXXXXX\ is the path of the .nds files:

copy %var%:\XXXXXXX\*.nds %var2%

To tell the script to copy gba files, add a line between :d and :e and add a line as follows, where \XXXXXXX\ is the path of the .gba files:

copy %var%:\XXXXXXX\*.rts %var2%

To tell the script to copy the CycloDS settings from the config.xml file, delete the line immediately after :f that looks like the following:

goto g

*NOTE*: The script will NOT copy any .rts, .sav, .nds, or .gba files if the path of such files is not specified in the script.

*NOTE*: Just to be organized:
The lines between :b and :c tell the script to copy .sav files.
The lines between :c and :d tell the script to copy .rts files.
The lines between :d and :e tell the script to copy .nds files.
The lines between :e and :f tell the script to copy .gba files.
The line between :f and :g tells the script to copy the CycloDS settings from the config.xml file in the CycloDS folder.

*NOTE*: The script will automatically create the directory specified in line 4 if it does not already exist.

This script was made by SARS from the Team Cyclops forum.
