Problem creating Grandfather, Father, Son backups
#10
(09-29-2023, 08:03 PM)admin Wrote: The version below has improved backup schedule and image retention policy, which allow us to create GFS backups, please download and try:
https://www.easyuefi.com/backup-software...Beta_3.exe

IMPORTANT: This is a beta release only and not the final release!!!

For more information about the new backup schedule:
1. If multiple schedules of a task are set to generate backups at the same time, Hasleo Backup Suite will only generate one backup, because it does not make much sense to generate multiple backups continuously in a short period of time.

For more information about the new image retention policy:
1. Since it usually takes a long time to merge image files, Hasleo Backup Suite now uses both image deletion and image merge methods to implement image retention policies to improve efficiency.
2. When deleting full backups, all differential and incremental backups linked to those full backups are also deleted.
3. When deleting differential backups, all incremental backups linked to those differential backups are also deleted.
4. When deleting incremental backups, use both image deletion and image merge methods to ensure that the backup chain is not broken. Please note that in the examples below, F refers to full backup, D refers to differential backup, and I refers to incremental backup.
    (4.1) Example 1, before retention, there is a backup chain F I I F I I I, and the image retention policy is set to retain three incremental backups, we only need to delete the first two incremental backups, because there are no other backups linked to these incremental backups, and deleting them will not cause the backup chain to break.
    (4.2) Example 2, before retention, there is a backup chain F I I F I I I, and the image retention policy is set to retain two incremental backups, we can safely delete the first two incremental backups, but we cannot delete the third incremental backup, because the last two incremental backups are linked to the third incremental backup. The solution is to merge the third incremental backup with the fourth incremental backup to produce a new incremental backup.
5. Since the image files are deleted directly, it is normal to warn that the image files have been deleted or lost when checking the integrity of the image.

Fantastic news, thank you very much!!  Like @RobLatour, I have also started a BETA test TODAY using the following specs... (2) FULLs on the 1st of each month, Differentials weekly at 10pm on Sundays & 7-days of daily Incrementals at 10pm (hoping to merge forward as needed).
