Naming Backup file with date

Is there a way to automatically name a backup file with the current date? I looked in both the help files and the forums, and didn't find anything. I seem to remember that this was possible in an earlier version of the program.

Thanks,

Sure,

inserting the text @date@ will add the date for you.

@mm@ - month, 2 digits;

@yyyy@ - year, 4 digits.
