delete old backups automatically when using dump?

Postby wrybread » Tue, 02 May 2006, 23:30

I'm wondering if there's a way to delete old backups automatically when backing up using hte dump command?

Ideally maybe be able to keep X number of backups, but simply deleting all previous backups would work too.

Thanks.

It is not a good idea to delete the old backups in dump mode, just because you may need them, when restoring data from the backups.

See the docs ( http://www.nncron.ru/nnbackup/help/EN/w ... s/dump.htm ) for an exaple of a pattern of dump backups.
