S3 Upload of AD 2008 System State Data

Aug 30, 2010 at 3:04 AM


I downloaded S3.exe in an attempt to upload Active Directory 2008 System State data.  The current system state backup is just short of 14.8 Gb and the /big specification appears ideal for my backup situation.  My batch file executes the following S3.exe command:

s3.exe put dim.adprd01/WindowsImageBackup/ D:\WindowsImageBackup\ /key:[myID] /secret:[myKey] /big:10 /yes /nogui /verbose

I receive the following output:

s3.exe version 1.7 - check for updates at http://s3.codeplex.com
No files found at D:\WindowsImageBackup\*  

at s3.Commands.Put.Execute()  

at s3.Program.Main(String[] originalArgs)

Directory D:\WindowsImageBackup\ has various subdirectories containing files but this directory does not contain any files.  Do you have any guidance on why I would receive this "No files found" response when the subdirectories contain data?

Thanks for providing this tool!

Hi, you've probably realised this by now but you need the /sub option.  Type "s3 help put" for more information.
