Revolving Backups - Profile

I do not like only a single backup, I may not discover I have a problem until the backup has been corrupted by the problem. This would mean my backup would contain the problem and be useless.

Timestamp backups are a great solution to that. I can back up to any given day.

The problem I have with timestamp backups is that they continue to accumulate (using disc and having a bunch of backups you will never use) unless you MANUALLY go in and delete them.

How about being able to create a timestamp "Rolling Backup" ? For example - I want to create up to 5 timestamped daily backups - automatically delete anything older than that !

What do people think?

Could somebody please move this to the febe 5 wishlist forum, somehow it got in the wrong forum and I don't seem to have an option to move it.

FEBE 5.0 beta does have an option for "Maximum backup directories to keep".
