Hi,

This is possible by enabling single zip compression option and adding a variable %DATE% in your Profile's Destination path.

You can enable single zip compression under:

Modify > Expert > Compression settings page > tick the options "Compress the files on destination/right into a Zip file" and "Put all the files into a single compressed file"

Please read the help file for more details about these options. With Compression settings page opened, press F1 to open the contextual help.

Then add %DATE% variable to your Destination path to backup files to a new zip file each day.

For example: You can set your Destination path as D:\MyBackup\Backup%DATE%.zip. When the profile is run SyncBackPro will create a new zip file with the current date ("D:\MyBackup\Backup4-10-2016.zip") on your Destination and backup files to that zip file.

Please refer to this forum post for more details:
