Microsoft DOS msbackup command
A later MS-DOS application that enables users to backup their data on their computer.
The msbackup is an MS-DOS version of the new backup command and mwbackup is the Windows version of this backup program.
MS-DOS 6.0, 6.2, 6.21, and 6.22 users can still find the older backup file on the MS-DOS 6.0 and 6.22 supplemental disk.
The msbackup and mwbackup commands are external commands that are available in the below Microsoft operating systems as msbackup.exe and mwbackup.exe.
MS-DOS 6.0, 6.2, 6.21, and 6.22 syntax
msbackup [setup_file] [/bw] [/lcd] [/mda]
|setup_file||Option setup file that can be used to specify what files to backup.|
|/bw||Run msbackup in black-and-white mode.|
|/lcd||Run msbackup in LCD screen mode.|
|/mda||Run msbackup in monochrome mode|
The above example would run MSBACKUP. Because this program is now a menu driven program there are not many switch options available.
