NOTE: This applies to both open source and commercial editions of Chocolatey.

1. Ensure you are set for organizational deployment

Please see the organizational deployment guide

  • Open Source or Commercial:
    • Proxy Repository - Create a proxy nuget repository on Nexus, Artifactory Pro, or a proxy Chocolatey repository on ProGet. Point your upstream to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2. Packages cache on first access automatically. Make sure your choco clients are using your proxy repository as a source and NOT the default community repository. See source command for more information.
    • You can also just download the package and push it to a repository Download

3. Enter your internal repository url

(this should look similar to https://chocolatey.org/api/v2)

4. Choose your deployment method:


choco upgrade vbackup -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'" [other options]

See options you can pass to upgrade.

See best practices for scripting.

Add this to a PowerShell script or use a Batch script with tools and in places where you are calling directly to Chocolatey. If you are integrating, keep in mind enhanced exit codes.

If you do use a PowerShell script, use the following to ensure bad exit codes are shown as failures:


choco upgrade vbackup -y --source="'STEP 3 URL'"
$exitCode = $LASTEXITCODE

Write-Verbose "Exit code was $exitCode"
$validExitCodes = @(0, 1605, 1614, 1641, 3010)
if ($validExitCodes -contains $exitCode) {
  Exit 0
}

Exit $exitCode

Description

Disclaimer

VBackup should run on most Windows operating systems, although it has only tried on Windows 7, XP and Vista.

Overview

VBackup is a command line program for Windows that is used to make backup copies of directories.
It is similar in functionality to XCOPY and ROBOCOPY, however, VBackup implements file versioning. This means that you can not only restore files from the latest backup, but you can also restore them from any previous backup.

I wrote VBackup for my personal use. It has several limitations, but it does everything that I need. I am releasing it as freeware (free for both private and commercial use) in case others will also find it useful.

The source code is available at GitHub as a Visual Studio C++ project.

Please visit the VBackup section of the FileViewer Support Forum for further information.

Usage

VBackup must be run from a Command Prompt. Run VBackup -? for an explanation of all the command line option.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).
