Retry on fail

Post by rustleg »

Sometimes a daily automatic backup fails because the existing file can't be opened. This is usually a transient problem but I couldn't find any mechanism to automatically retry it after a delay. This often means I miss the backup of one particular day's versions. When I need to go back to find a file I created a few days or weeks ago, my archive of backups doesn't have that day's backup.

If I'm missing something please point me to how to do it. If not is there a good reason why this facility isn't built in? Ideally we should be able to select the delay before retry and the maximum number of attempts.
