Multi Backup

Post by shiphted »

I have been using Backup4ALL for many years but I have a weird request and im hoping I can do it.

I currently backup a client with SmartBackup.

I want to then again backup this client's information once a day for 7 days and then delete the first day and so on.

My goal here is to have 7 days of backups incase a user deletes a file 4 days ago and needs it restored.

If there is another option let me know.

When you use the Smart backup type, you cannot set how many versions to keep.

How large is that backup?
If you can store 7 full backups in destination, please change the type in Backup Properties->Types to Full.
Then set the number of stored backup versions at 7 from Backup Properties->Type->Storage

If the backup is large and you cannot store 7 full backups in destination, please use the Incremental backup type. Only new and modified files will be backed up. When the limit is reached, the oldest incremental will be deleted.
