Backup additional folders/files
I have already posted how to Encrypt and backup your Opera files using WinRAR. Some found it difficult. So, I created OBLWCLSC using AutoHotkey.
OBLWCLSC size is less than 210 KB and installation is not required. Configure it once, press shortcut key, Ctrl+Alt+O or click backup button to create backup.
You can password protect your backup files. WinRAR uses AES with 128-bit key.
Opera Backup List and WinRAR Command Line Shortcut Creator (OBLWCLSC)
Download OBLWCLSC.zip, unzip & run OBLWCLSC.exe
OBLWCLSC.exe will create/modify 4 files and one registry value.
- Settings file OBLWCLSC.ini
- List of files and directories to backup Opera Backup.lst
- WinRAR command line shortcut Opera Backup.lnk

- Read me file OBLWCLSC Read Me.txt
- Registry value HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\WinRAR\Profiles\0\Background will be modified to enable/disable background archiving in WinRAR.
You can either do full or incremental backup. In full backup, backup file name can be appended with date, time, date & time or number.
