Back up your KeePass database daily automatically (with timestamp), howto

Many people place their KeePass database in a Dropbox folder.

It's a good idea, but doesn't it seem just a little dangerous? Who knows—resynchronization might lose a password you just created, or worse.

So I wrote a utility which backs up your KeePass database with a timestamp, every time you start your computer.

It's for Windows users. I've been using it safely since March, 2011.

Just now, I realized I could improve its usability by removing (from its installation instructions) a difficult step setting up the shortcut (which was formerly a show-stopper). It uses Ruby from your PATH now (instead of the kluge of a fixed location the user has to manage).

I've made the change, so now it's on Github.
