How can I set this up?

Post by lwarfi »

Assume I have a 1TB drive for data. I have a 1.5TB drive for backups. I want to set up my schedule to do a full backup and then nightly differentials until I've used up the 1.5TB. Once the space is used, I want to restart the cycle.

My data (photographs) doesn't change rapidly, but does grow in spurts as I either go out an shoot more, or start to process the results from shooting. I don't want to schedule a weekly full because 1) it takes too long, and 2) many weeks there is only a few % change in the amount of space consumed.

You cannot configure Backup4all to automatically restart the cycle based on the free disk space in destination.
You can configure it to perform backups and cleanup operations based on a scheduled scenario.
Example: run full backups every month, daily incremental backups and monthly cleanup right before the full.
