Labeling backup types

Post by Klaatu »

Ran a full backup and scheduled/ran a differential backup but noticed they aren't marked "full" or "differential." On the drive they're stored on, the only differences are the folder names (backup and backup1) and file size so it's not easy to tell them apart as I've found with other backup programs. Ideally, they'd be labeled precisely what type they are.

Hi,

As I understand, you created two independent backup jobs.
Please note the first execution of a differential backup job is always a full. Only after that differential backups will be performed.
If you want your backup zip files labeled with the type name, go to Backup Properties->Type->Storage
In the "Customize prefix of backup files" section, press "Insert tag" and select "Backup type".
Press Save.
Next time you'll run the backup, the zip file name will also contain the backup type.
