Rotating Backups

Post by Mark » 20 Dec 2006, 13:25


I am attempting to get one job to upload the same file each day, but keep a weeks worth of this file on the FTP server. I have set the depth as 7 and tried every combination of prefix, date format, and depth type, but I do not seem to achieve a rotating backup (i.e., overwrite the first file on the 8th day). I must be missing something very obvious

In Save2FTP if you set depth=7 and for example
After 8-th backup Save2FTP just delete the oldes backup ()in this case first) and you always will have 7 newest backups.
