Can I set a number of backups to keep?

Is there a setting or post-Backup Cmd that would limit the number of backups saved to a certain number? deleting the older backups?

Hello,
it can be done with a custom script which is executed after backup.
Please check this page:

Sorry to bother you again.

I’ve tried to use your scripts to “Add date to the backup files” and “Keep last N backups”

But I just don’t know what I am doing.

Is there and idiots guide that can walk me through the process of adding these two scripts to your ADD On?

Thank you.

Hello Greg,

you cant combine it easily because "keen last n backups" will just cycle to numbers 1-n and automatically overwrite
the olders backup.
When adding a date you cant easily cycle the date or numbers.

Do you do a daily backup?
In this case it would ease up the task.

Kind regards,
Thomas
