Archive saving


This tab configures parameters of archive saving. The following options are available:

Archive prefix

Archive file (folder) will be named [Archive prefix][Date format].[extension]

Date format

You can ask APBackUp to add a date to the archive file name. For example, if you set Archive prefix "Work-" Date format "YYYYMMDD", then the archive created at 10.12.2003 will be named "Work-20031210.zip".

You can also use "\" in the date format. For example, if the date format was "YYYY\MM\DD\hh-nn", then archive created at 02.01.2003 12:34 would have the full path "20003\01\02\12-34.zip". This way you can sort archives to different folders depending on the creation date.

·      c Displays the date using the short format.

·      dd Displays the day as a number with a leading zero (01-31).

Extra folders

It is possible to save archive files in 3 different folders. For every such folder you can set different Depth, Archive prefix and Date format.
