GeneralLooking for Recent Article on Backup Utility Pin
Patrick Skelton9-Jul-19 21:37

A few weeks ago, a guy posted an article about a backup utility he had written. The way it works is that you give it a source directory and one-or-more target directories. It then backs up the source to the oldest target directory. In this way, you can keep a recent history of a directory for, say, the last week by running it daily on seven target directories.

This happens to be precisely what I want, and I thought to myself, 'I must keep that post and install this when I get chance.' Unfortunately, I seem to have done my usual trick of putting it somewhere so safe that even I can't find it.

Does any of this ring a bell with anyone out there? If not, can anyone suggest an alternative (preferably free, 'cos money is tight) tool that can do something similar?

Any help would be very gratefully received.

Kind wishes - Patrick
Thank you to anyone taking the time to read my posts.
