Incremental Rename rather than overwrite

    Question

  • Hidy,

    I have 3 folder pairs accommodating backup needs which I run from a batch file.

    At present all New files overwrite the old. With one, though; a single fie, I would like each old file to be kept by renaming them incrementally.

    I can't find a way of doing this within Synctoy's Options\Change options list. The only way I can find is by choosing, "Save overwritten files in the Recycle Bin", and manually restoring the saved files, renaming them, and placing them in the original backup folder. It works, but is tedious.

    It doesn't matter how the incremented rename happens, as long a each file becomes distinct and sequential - calendar.idb2, or calendar.idb(2), or whatever.

    Any ideas?

    Cheers.
