Backinfo PowerShell script

Here is a quick script that will copy backinfo.exe to a PC and create a registry setting to run at logon.

Put Backinfo.exe and Backinfo.ini in a folder called Backinfo (e.g. c:\temp\Backinfo) and run this script from the temp folder.

robocopy.exe Backinfo "C:\Program Files\Backinfo"

New-ItemProperty -Path "HKLM:\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run" -Name BackInfo -Type String -Value "C:\Program Files\BackInfo\Backinfo.exe"
#Run it now
CD "C:\Program Files\BackInfo"

I run it using a batch file from the same location:

powershell.exe -executionpolicy Bypass -file ./backinfo.ps1

Also see my other post for more info and to download backinfo –

Here is a complete file with the scripts, batch file and backinfo files. Just extract it somewhere and run the batch file: backinfo
