Backup Ideas

I honestly hate crossposting, but in this case I think the post deserves some attention it obviously didn't get.

Here's the link:

A restore calendar and the number of backups to keep are good ideas that were suggested for PortableApps.com Backup but could easily apply as feature requests for Toucan.

Yes

I quite like this idea, I will look at adding it, perhaps in conjunction with a proper incremental mode.

Thanks!

I've got a directory full of profile backups, and have to go in and purge the oldest ones periodically. I think I might change the backup name to put the @date@ first, so the different backup sets would sort easily.

Picking a restore set from a calendar is pretty intuitive and a lot like the Windows system restore feature.
