Title: Backup Scheme
Post by: oradba4u on July 16, 2017, 10:44:13 am
All:
Does anybody have a flow chart, or program that incorporates a backup scheme for daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, annually?

For example... BEFORE a daily backup, yesterdays daily backup gets moved to the weekly backups, after 7 daily backups they get moved to monthly backups, etc. etc. I would think that it would have to work backwards from the yearly backup folder, as if it's the start of a new yearly cycle, the annual folder should be moved to a legacy folder.

Any ideas? Where to look for such a thing, or other ideas greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Is this something you want controlled by Winbatch? Not sure if you want to document, or both execute and document.
