BackupPC full backups only
June 09, 2015 11:35PM

I set a backup some years ago, it works fine:
- Full backup 6.97day(s)
- Inc. backup 1day(s)
But I want to modify it without incremental backup:

So I modified the config and restart (BackupPC-3.3.1-1.fc22.x86_64), but it runs full backup every day.
(I would like to run full backup 6.97days.)

What do I miss in config?

It seems I need to set the "IncrPeriod" to high value. For example. 999999 (days).

You can do the backup with a help of third party software such as AOMEI baockupper, which can do the backup as you want. if you want to do an automatic backup, you can setup a schedule backup, it including the full backup, incremental backup, and differential backup. if you do not like a schedule backup, you can do it manually without setting schedule backup.

The IncPeriod has high value (9999999999), but the BackupPC doesn't backup anything!
Why? What do I need to set?

It works with these settings:
FullPeriod = 6.97
FullKeepCnt = 2
FullKeepCntMin = 2
FullAgeMax = 90
IncrPeriod = 6.97
IncrKeepCnt = 0
IncrKeepCntMin = 0
IncrAgeMax = 0
IncrLevels = 0

It works fine (1 full backup once a week, no incremental).
