Hi!
Can anyone help me with the configuration of storebackup?
I want to backup a directory and store the files 30 days, 12 backups of the first of a week, 12 backups of the first of a month, 2 backups of the first of a year.
What are the correct timePeriods for this configuration?

storebackup -s <dir> -f <backupdir> --keepFirstOfMonth 12m --keepFirstOfWeek 12???? --keepFirstOfYear 2????

Thanks a lot!
Günther

Hi,

sorry, I didn't read you notice :-(

simply use:

storeBackup.pl -s <dir> -f <backupdir> --keep 30d --keepFirstOfWeek 85d --keepFirstOfMonth 367d --keepFirstOfYear 732d

Hi,
I would like to say, that I'm very satisfied with storeBackup!
But now I have a little problem when I made a backup from /home, I respond this message:

What can I do?
Thanks a lot!

Hi,

Great program. Thansk for it.

I am trying to backup with storeBackup from a linux machine on a Windows NTFS share shared with Samba. Unfortunately it seems NTFS doesn't support hardlinks. Is this correct? Is there a way to get the very efficient way of storing which is used on ReiserFS etc. on a NTFS share?
