Backup your INI's 1.0

For those who change their INI's a lot and may want to revert ... or you just mess around with your INI's a lot, then here's a powershell script that will move them into a dir and zip them up for you. Actually, all your ini's. There probably is a 300$ version of ini back up listed some where out there, but this works. You just need to be able to run powershell scripts on your system.

Right click and select "Run with powershell" and it'll do it's magic. It will make a directory called ini_backup under your macro folder. It should be noted that if some how you have a file with the same name (it uses date, time with seconds) then it will overwrite it inside the backup directory.

You need to place this file into the MACROS folder. (it's inside the zip.. it's a PS1 file for powershell).

Sorry for the prefix; I didn't know which one would be most appropriate.
