Backup alternating between 2 folders

Post by andiherbst »

Hey,

-) I want to create a backup that rotates between 2 folders A and B. When the backup is run it should recognize that last time e.g. folder A was the destination and now use B. Then A again next time. I wasn't successful when trying to use variables - date or alike did not accomplish this. Is there an easy way I simply didn't see? If not could you give me a hint where to start scripting - just 2-3 lines pseudocode :) I know you will not code it for me but I'll really appreciate some hints on how to be efficient :)

-) Also I have another question: When I create a profile, which uses fastbackup, is there a separate database created per profile? If I create another profile using fastbackup, will it create an additional database for it? I assume it works this way :)

Thx a lot :)!
Best,
Andi

Hi,

You can achieve this easily by creating 2 profiles in SyncBackPro. Configure Profile 1 to backup files to folder A, and Profile 2 to folder B. Then schedule these 2 profiles to run on alternative days. For example: Profile 1 to run on Mon, Wed, Friday and Profile 2 on Tue,Thursday and Saturday.

You can create a schedule tasks under:

Modify > When > Edit Schedule settings page

Please read the help file for more details on Schedule settings. With Edit Schedule settings page opened, press F1 to open the contextual help.
When I create a profile, which uses fastbackup, is there a separate database created per profile?
Yes, SyncBackPro creates a separate database for each Fast Backup profile.

Thank you.
