I am currently backing up to 2 rotating drives. Here is what I would like to do.

First, can I schedule the drives so that I can pick the day that the rotation occurs. Currently Friday would be great, but SD wants Wednesday to be that day.


Secondly, is there anyway to do incremental backups? ie, On day 1, I do a complete backup. On day 2, I backup only changed files to a disk image. On day 3, I backup only changed files to a disk image. Etc. So if I need to go back to a file from day 2, I can.


Thanks.

I'm not quite sure why SD! would force you to rotate on a Wednesday -- you can choose whatever day you'd like. You might find it more flexible to set the UUID/GUID for the drive the same; the technique is elsewhere on the forum (or send me some email to support and I'll send you the steps).

And, no - while we'll make incremental changes to a given volume, we won't save those changes separately.
