Problem creating Grandfather, Father, Son backups
#40
(Small number theory mistake, I should have started with "Full-00", OR assigned Diff 49 (and Inc-B 07) (instead of full 01, OR Diff 48/IncB-06))

Yes, perhaps my point was more to demonstate the problem with a high number of incrementals and increasing size of differentials, forcing the user to make a new Full Backup often.

Let's see if it is possible to get HBS to do this to some degree:


00 Full
01 Inc-A
...
11 Inc-A
12 Inc-B ### user removes 02,...,11 before creation of 12
13 Inc-A
...
23 Inc-A
24 Inc-B ### user removes 13 ... 23 before creation of 24
25 Inc-A
...
35 Inc-A
36 Inc-B ### user removes 25 ... 35 before creation of 36
37 Inc-A
...
47 Inc-A
48 Inc-B and Diff-B ### user removes 37 ... 47 before creation of 48-Inc-B. User then created 48-Diff-B and MOVES Diff-B into separate folder. Inc-A-49 (and Inc-B-60) will now be based on Inc-B 48 (it is not so imporant to make it also work with Diff, this possibility is unnessary and not available in this solution)
49 Inc-A
...
59 Inc-A
60 Inc-B ### user removes 49 ... 59 before creation of 60.

Does this work?
