Simpler version of the 7-Zip backup

I have tested the 7-Zip backup I had constructured that I posted about a while back and I have come to realise that it is a tad bit too complicated. I even went through the process of creating a proxy application to try and get it to be a bit more cleverer but in the end I simplified it down to just 4 parts; the logic, settings and file lists.

Backup.cmd

Settings.txt

Exclusions.txt

Inclusions.txt

How to use it

Place the batch file and settings files in a folder somewhere.

Update the setttings file with the correct paths.

Pass the path to the settings file to the backup batch file.

Or create a scheduled task.
