Subject nbackup use
Author greg_runnels
I'm trying to set up a backup system using nbackup. I am using the suggested scheme of:
Monthly level 0
Weekly level 1
daily level 2
hourly level 3

I would like to save the backups for a period of time. For example, the monthly backups I'd like to keep for at least a year. So my backup is named backup_Year_Month.nbk, so it would be backup_2010_11.nbk for November of 2010. Next month it will be backup_2010_12.nbk. My questions is what the level 1 backup is preformed (weekly) how does it know which level 0 backup to use? It looks to me like there can only be one version of each level in the directory used for backup, is this true?
