Cobain Backup Restore Tool

Cobain is a decent backup software and given that its free I decided to try it out.  The one thing is majorly lacks is the ability to restore incremental backups.  The software makes a sub folder for each backup containing the files that have been changed. The issue?  How do you do a full restore? Going through months of folders copying and pasting files was not something I wanted to do, therefore I wrote a quick a dirty utility to combine the incremental backups into the initial full backup.


Source is in  Its not pretty. I didn’t  intend on anyone seeing the code, just wanted to get my files restored as fast as possible.
