Rotating Backups - Day, Then Month, Then Year

Post by jmorgannz »

Hi all,

I have a script that generates a zip file which I would like SyncBack to back up to an external drive.
I already have SB set up to run the script, and once the script is done, copy the file to the external.

However what I would really like is for SB to manage rotating the backups too.

I'd like to keep the most recent seven days, then one backup per month for the current year, then one per year.

Is there any way SyncBack can do something like this?
If not, does anyone know of an app that might accomplish this on windows?
