With the new drive in use what could ever go wrong?


I am a bit concerned about your common sense. As if you learnt nothing from this incident.

Backup, backup, backup, backup, backup. That should be your strategy from now on.

Source code is small and can easily be compressed even smaller. A project can be backed up in seconds. Whenever you stop working on a project or make some satisfying progress, make a new backup of it. At least once a day.

lha -erax a backupdrive:backupdir/projectname_date_time devdrive:projectsdir/projectname

Put the backups in a safe place, preferredly a network drive or cloud storage.

I know, I know, I know, Thomas! And I have tried this before with LHa, but as usual it takes about 4 hours to accomplish archiving a project (ONE project!). Problem most probably is that I do use a whole lot of (soft-)links in a project and I have the suspicion LHa does not cope well with this phenomenon.
In average there are some 13 (soft-)links in a project, vs only 7 - 10 text (.c & .h) files. 285k vs 20 - 35k.

LHa just misses an option to skip links altogether (options 'j' & 'J' are still available...).

But thanks for your advice anyway.
