Incremental Backups?

Post by Kerry.Lord » Fri Jan 24, 2014 5:50 pm

Is there a way to make incremental backups?

By this I mean the ability to configure MyInfo to automatically create a separate backup (every so many minutes) that does NOT overwrite the former backup. This way, if data unknowingly gets erased and then saved, the former backups will not be overwritten because separate incremental backups are being made. And once the missing data is noticed then it can be retrieved by looking through incremental backups. I know this may present a storage space issue as well as the need to manage incremental backups, but in view of lost data it would insure MyInfo is a robust and redundant software package.

If you're by any chance storing your MyInfo files in a Dropbox folder, that's happening already. Dropbox saves your files at regular intervals, and if necessary you can go to the Dropbox server and retrieve any one of numerous earlier versions of a particular file. It's saved my life a few times.
