Can nnBackup access jpeg metadata?

Postby noggin » Mon, 18 Feb 2008, 00:02

Hello
I've happily used nnBackup for a couple of years now for incremental backups.

Now I'm wondering if I could also use nnBackup to download photos from my camera. Sounds simple I know, but I want to automatically file my jpegs by the date created - for example, all photos taken today would go in a new directory called 2007_02_17.

I'm going to do look into this more myself, but just wanted to get a quick yes or no answer from the forum here.

Thanks!

Try to use this utility:
http://www.nncron.ru/download/dcim.exe
Usage:
dcim.exe -i "input/path" -o "output/path" -m "masks"

Thanks Nicholas - it took a while for me to get around to trying this but it seems to work perfectly.

Is there a way to tell dcim to traverse sub-directories of the input path?

cheers! dAN

dcim travels over all subdirectories recursively.

p.s. I'm subscribed to this thread but not receiving any emails, which is why I'm so slow replying

All the best
