Backup destination with variables

by isle-gmbh » Fri Apr 15, 2016 9:31 pm

I want to specify a backup destination using variables to achieve this:
folder: %YEAR%KW%CALENDAR_WEEK%
file name: %WEEKDAY%.zip

e.g.: 2016KW16 \ Di.zip

How can this be done?

Hello,

I'm sorry, but a destination of this type is not supported.

The backup destination has to be a static location from the O/S standpoint, meaning a mapped drive, a specific network location, or a device ip address.
Should you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to contact me - I'd be glad to assist you.

Thank You,

Yes of course, I'm planing to use a network share like this:
\\backup_dest_server\share\2016KW16\Di.zip
