Title: Scheduled Config Backups
Post by: mr.rosh on February 08, 2017, 08:37:36 pm
Hi franco,

Is it possible to also include a schedule to be able to schedule hourly and/or daily backups to an alternate location within the installed disk path.

and the ability to put in date-time text appended to backup file.

that way, we can easily identify the config file by the name.

Also, the restore functionality to be able to see this local path for restoring purposes, if possible.

There is sadly no "easy" way in this case aswell.
Same as before u can create a feature request which franco may merge in the end. :)

Best regards
Oxy

can we have a feature request section on this forum.
that way we can also have votes, or it, incase more users want it as well.

@franco that would be awesome if u could open up one thread just for collecting feature requests.
Since my idea was just a self made solution i would be happy to see an official release for a backup solution some day in the near future. :)

Threads with more than one feature request end up loosing traction very fast. Best is to request features on GitHub, get others to back them up to show they are wanted by the community as a whole.


Cheers,
