This time, I’m going to take an idea from a twitter post from Pablo Corral (@pablocorral) about how to backup a Delicious account, taken from “http://www.shell-fu.org/lister.php?id=843“.
Since in Windows we don’t have wget, the first step is to download a wget utility for Windows. There are some of them out there, but the one we need, has to support https, so I went to http://users.ugent.be/~bpuype/wget/ and downloaded it from there.
Once you download it, put it on some folder, for instance, your Windows main folder.
Next, you have to issue this command from a Command line:
wget “https://api.del.icio.us/v1/posts/all” –http-user=your_delicious_user
–http-passwd=your_delicious_password –no-check-certificate -O my_delicious_backup.xml
Thats it. Keep in mind that -O parameter is Capital letter O.
Hopefully, it helps!
