if you find it useful to include the time of the backup/archive:

sudo git archive --prefix ${PWD##*/}/ HEAD -o ../${PWD##*/}-$(date "+%Y.%m.%d-%H.%M.%S").zip

@sadernalwis That's a good idea.

I use one time

git config --global alias.zip 'archive HEAD -o' 

and then when you want..

git zip test.zip 

Ah sorry repost, sorry..

git archive HEAD -o ../$(Split-Path -Path ${PWD} -Leaf)-$(Get-Date -UFormat "%Y.%m.%d-%H.%M").zip

I got here when i looked for a command do backup the whole (local) repository including .git.

Here it is:

7z.exe a -bd ../archive.7z * '-xr@.\.gitignore'
