Backups

  • Backups are created
    • On application startup, in case the application isn't left running. Kept for a fortnight.
    • Daily - everyday but Sunday at 12am, and never on the 1st day of the month at 12am.  Kept for a week.
    • Weeklies - every Sunday at 12am, and never on the 1st day of the month at 12am.  Kept for 30 days.
    • Monthlies - 1st of every month at 12am, unless it's Jan 1.  Kept for a year.
    • Yearly, 12am Jan 1 - Kept indefinitely.

If a backup is missing when the backup process is initiated for any of the above, it will be filled in with a copy of the backup in progress.  For example, it's 9am on Tuesday and the computer was powered off overnight, so there was no backup at midnight.  KoalaBrain is started and the startup backup is initiated.  The missing backup for midnight will now be filled in with a copy of the 9am startup backup.
