Why oldest instead of newest?
March 15, 2005 09:27AM
I have been running rsnapshot to do daily snapshots for a little while
now and its been great..

I now added weekly.. I am just confused as to the reason that the
"oldest" daily snapshot is taken for the weekly one instead of making a
copy of the "newest" daily snapshot..

Can someone explain?

Because now you have a snapshot that is a week old, and six successive
daily snapshots.
