using ti2009 would like to build repetitive backup cycle ie. full backup every Monday with incrementals on Tuesday Wednesday Thursday and Friday. Keeping 4 complete backup cycles (otherwise) a month of backups. That continually repeats deleting the oldest backups as the 5 copy is built. I am using a larger usb2.0 external drive and not concerned with space. I want to be able to mount any day in the past rolling 30 days if possible. My thought was to schedule Monday as a full backup and then select 4 incrementals before next full backup and then setting the total backup count to 20. It appears to me consolidation will eventually result (over time) to 16 full backups and 4 incrementals. Am I missing something.. in previous release I used pre.bat to accomplish the same cycle. thanks for whatever advice I can get.
