    Aomei Comand Line Functions questions


    I know that most everybody here uses Macrium Reflect and so do I, but I'm a disaster recovery freak and also use Aomei for a secondary backup. I was using the free backerupper for couple of years now. When I first purchased M.R., I set up several backup command line backups and all has been good, but I also was backing up using Aomei. So Aomei had a sale 2/1 for the same price of single lic and I bought it.

    Now I trying to set up command line functions for Aomei. I can perform full backups with my eyes closed, but I can't get the command line function to perform an Incremental backup ! I did talk to Aomei support (via Email) Their time zone is 12 hrs different than mine and have reported this issue I'm having. But this taking a bunch of days with questions and answers going back and forth, so I decided to open this thread.

    The Error I'm receiving is "You've entered a wrong command format, please enter /? to check the help.".

    The command looks like this: AMBackup /b inc /s "i:\bkup_1\DeskTop\DeskTop.adi" /m 25000


    If anybody is familiar with Aomei, chime in. As you can see their error messages are not very informative.

    Thanks

    Well I did finally get solution, but not an answer to WHY ! It seems on any function that is to perform any actions (Inc, Diff, etc) on an existing backup, any optional parameters supplied on the command line are flagged as an error.

    For example: my incremental backup command

    AMBackup /b inc /s "i:\bkup_1\DeskTop\DeskTop.adi" /m 25000

    Should be coded as:

    AMBackup /b inc /s "i:\bkup_1\DeskTop\DeskTop.adi"


    This does work.
