Backup/BackupEncrypt using AutoIt & 7Zip

Sometimes, there are 'miscellaneous' files I'd like backed up that normally don't go into source control. To do that I drag/drop files on the Backup.exe/BackupEncrypt.exe (compiled AutoIt scripts) -- they use & 7Zip to create .zip files in a '_zArchive' folder where those files are found.
There is a 'one-for-one' relationship of drag-dropped files and resultant '.zips'.

Scripts are dependent on this script(place at C:\!WF\_INC\filename.au3):
UtilityFunc.au3.exe
Place in a folder above the one used as target for other scripts("..\inc\UtilityFunc.au3")

If you'd like to see the .au3 files(place at C:\!WF\myWidgets\filename.au3):
Backup.au3.exe
BackupEncrypt.au3.exe

Note:  All link~downloads are self-extracting files.  I've tested with WinZip 12.1 and 7Zip 4.65

I know this post is a bit old but I was wondering if you could make these files available for download.

Thanks!

If you click the links -- they should still be good, yes?

Interesting(in an ugly way).

I can no longer open some of the older '.zip' files I made with 7Zip using my current version of WinZip 12.1...

I'll have to discourage use of the Backup/BackupEncrypt scripts until I find out more.

Jason et all:

I've revised & tested with 7zip 4.65 and WinZip 12.1 -- I think these are safe ~ ready now. The links should work -- they're self-extracting executables that extract to 'MyItzyBits' (folder created whereever you download ~ run the self-extracting file.
