Merge Backups

Post by pcready.cl » Thu Feb 18, 2016 5:33 am

B4ALL v5
if not select "merge backups" I deleted the amount defined when met, eg:

1 full and 3 differentials:

FIRST DAY - FULL_BACKUP
SECOND DAY - 1_DIFF
THIRD CIA - 1_ DIFF / 2_DIFF
FOURTH DAY - 1_ DIFF / 2_DIFF / 3_DIFF
FIFTH DAY - 4_DIFF

The numbers 2, 3 and 4 days are eliminated and begins again from the number 4. I can only do that when you reach the fourth day remove the first day and I keep the day 2 and 3?

Hi,

The fist backup is Full. It is the base for all subsequent backup executions. Deleting it will make the rest of the backups unusable in case of restore.
You should have a new full in order for Backup4all to delete the older one.
