    Default newbie question: weekly backup

    sorry for newbie question:
    i am reading
    http://www.zimbra.com/docs/ne/latest...tore.13.1.html

    as far as i can understand, to get full backup every sunday and inc 1-6, but to keep only 1 week and not to delete 1 month older, i have to do:

    f 0 1 * * 0
    i 0 1 * * 1-6
    d 1 w 0 0 * * 0

    on sunday at midnight it deletes all the past week backups (f and i) and do a full, starting a new week backups

    just to be sure to be right
    Regards
    Maurizio

    Hi Maurizio,

    you should make sure to always have a full backup for the incs to start from. So make sure that you delete the last weeks full after finishing the new one!
    I would even prefer to have 2 full backups if possible.
    Here is our schedule:
    d 8d 0 0 * * *
    f 0 1 * * 6
    i 0 1 * * 0-5
    So you are sure that there is always one full backup (two fulls for one day after the new full was made) available.
    I would keep it longer but as all backups are moved to tape anyways I can recover from any backup for up to a month.
