Consolidate incremental backup

Postby npicone » February 25th, 2015, 3:28 am

Hi,
I'm using Pro with incremental backups and I'd like to know how if it is possible to consolidate backup files in order to maintain only 10 days of backups.
I've tried to trash old files but GB doesn't backup the missing files..

Any help?
Thanks

Hi

The program cannot do this automatically. You can use this method:
1. Move your current backup archives (such as *.tar or *.tgz) to a temporary folder.
2. In the backup project properties, set the Backup Method to Versioned.
3. Run the project once. The program should create a full backup. Now you have an archive with all up-to-date files with no modification history.
4. Set the Backup Method back to Incremental.

If everything is alright, you can delete the older backup archives.
