Zip file versioning

Post by warwagon »

I'm helping a guy backup his program. The company recommends backing up the entire directory located on the root of C.

What I would LOVE to do is compress the folder into a zip and just have different versions of the zip up to X number.

Example

Software.zip
Software7152020.zip
Software 7162020.zip

and so on.

This feature would be great.

Ok, so after researching it I did find the variable I could use %DATE%.Zip

Which is pretty sweet, although I would like it to keep only X number of Zip files as not to completely fill up his backup drive.
