Prune options

Post by Barry »

The point of a generation style backup is to keep the specified number of versions of files so it would not be appropriate to delete based on date. This is contrary to the session based backups that are snapshots in time of the PC - the date based pruning is already covered by the Advanced Session Management.

The prune if backup exceeds a certain size will be looked as an additional feature for a future version of AISBackup. This has been asked for before by the other user of AISBackup.

+1 on this. Would love to see this being implemented in the future.
