Restore point option suggestion

Post by topry » Feb 07, 2011 3:42 pm

It would be helpful to have an option to set restore points to keep by number of days as an option to the number of individual restore points.

Usage - For one backup set, that I run daily, I need to maintain one full week of backups, so I set the restore points to 7.
However, should I need to run a backup intra-day (which seems to happen more frequently than originally planned), I either must manually increment my restore points and remember to decrement later, or I will lose a day each time I run the intra-day job.

A nice option would be:
Keep 'x' days a max of 'y' points, but an either/or option would be fine as well.
