in thread [SOLVED] copying a file with .bak extension

Script works great thanks a lot! Is it possible to have the backup get modified instead of the original? Only the original gets the modification. Thanks again.

    You could use kennethk's updated solution but open the newly created backup in append mode instead of the original.
