[Fixed] Multiple incremental backups in one day not working

I was playing w/ the incremental backup feature and it created the first large archive with out a problem, the incremental with out an issue, but when I tried to create another incremental on the same day it didn't work. It seems that the incremental archive has its name as the date. So if two are done on the same day then it bombs since the archive already exists.

In the future a great feature to have would be the ability to merge incremental archives with the main archive at at given interval. Like after 5 incrementals the last archive would get merged with the main archive. This would keep the number of backup files down yet keep backups quick and easy.

One per day

The software was designed to only do one per day. I think Steve said he may adjust this in the next version.

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!

Indeed,

in the next version the time will be included. As for merging them, that is an interesting idea that I'll look at.
