I would suggest a config option like 'remove older backups to free space'. That would work great as well in combination with the 'logarithmic' cleaning, because you will only loose your oldest backup when your backup disk is (nearly) full. You might also want to add an option to 'keep at least # full backups', which will cause sbackup to fail if there really is no space left. This would prevent you from having only the latest backup left in case the new backup is unexpectedly large.
Seems like this would not be much work to implement - anyone? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Simple Backup Maintainers, which is subscribed to sbackup. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/913827 Title: should delete old backups, then create new / not enough space on media To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/sbackup/+bug/913827/+subscriptions _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team Post to : email@example.com Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~nssbackup-team More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
