I have created a script for Windows, Mac and Linux.

It uses 7zip to create a monthly backup of the Ryzom profile folder. If a backup already exists for this month, it creates an incremental backup that only saves changes based on the monthly backup.

Optionally, images, audios, modifications, logs and debug files can be deleted or omitted from the backup. Simply comment out the options in the script.

Tested by me under Ubuntu 16.04.6 and Windows 7 SP2.

It would be good if further test it. Thank you!

Here is the final version 1:

Download ZIP
Download TAR.GZ

Thanks to Siela for the simple Mac solution!
Thanks to Moniq for the inspiration to the Windows script!

Question: Does it work on Ryzom installations that are NOT made by the Installer?

Good Question!

Answer: Yes it does, but you need to change the path to you profile folder at DST in the script. Default it is the normal path as in the wiki documented: https://en.wiki.ryzom.com/wiki/Ryzom_location

I guess in Steam there are the profiles in the same folder as the client is. In this case, it would backup the client data also. Maybe i should add some EXCLUDE variables for this situation.

I really missed that point. Only Windows have profile and client folder, the others are default in the same folder.
Need to add this EXCLUDE variable for Steam, Mac and Linux. On my installation on Linux I chose a different folder for the client data. Schame on me :-D

Thank you. Very clear and useful for most Ryzom users.

Not useful in my case because I don't have a "profile folder". I have a separate installation of Ryzom for each account.

On the other hand that means that I really don't need to worry about it since copying the Save folder and the client.cfg file is easy.

So as I understood, you something like this for every account or?

@Bitttymacod Ich updated the script so that it would work for you also. Just add the paths to the ryzom installations with a space between under SRC. It will now ignore all client files and folders by default.

Could you test it please? Thanks
