Using the same file name for backups

I'm backing up daily to an external hard drive and each backup has a different file name. Is it possible to overwrite yesterday's backup with the same file name?

Hi,

If you use the Full backup type and want to have every time the backup with the same name (example 1_D.zip), you will have to open Backup Properties, then go to Advanced page and select the "Run program or action" in the "Run action before backup" section. Make sure that <Clear backup> is selected.
Then press Save.
Each time you run a new backup, the previous one and the history is deleted, then a complete new one is created.
