Backup the queue

Wouldn’t it be nice if DC++ could update your queue in case DC++ die or a mouse knaws on the power cable or something?

Download the source and fire up Visual Studio because here we go!

Add this line

File::copyFile(getQueueFile(), getQueueFile() + “.backup”);

to the end of QueueManager::saveQueue().
Now, every time saveQueue() is called the file ‘Queue.xml.backup’ will be created.

So, when is saveQueue() called? 1) When DC++ shut down. 2) When it has gone 10 seconds since the last save and the queue is ‘dirty’. That is, when something has been removed or added (well, yes, and changed…).
So, our backup will be created each time DC++ closes. And when DC++ start? Fine… I’ll throw in if you also close the queue…



to QueueManager::~QueueManager(). This will have DC++ create the backup when the download queue window is closed.



to MainFrame::OnCreate(…). This will have DC++ create the backup when DC++ start.

    From the old blog:
    Excellent Upgrade! Good idea to save the que, but please add the Favorites list, to save hub sites logins and passwords. It would be nice to add a email section too. (an older version Zeroed my list and it took a couple of weeks to get back to half the hubs, thr rest were gone.) Consider offering a standard and /or just a Premium version .
    .6811 has been very quick after i applied big buffers, i will post more on machine to machine speed tests.
    Thanks again
