Backup function


perhaps I misunderstand, but it's not the way I learned how Full/Incremental Backups should work:

If I create a full backup (with everything selected) in to /var/backup/virtualmin I get a file there. however when I create a second job using incremental it seems to overwrite the Full backup file using the incremental.

kind regards

Howdy -- yes, that is correct... you are seeing the expected behavior there.

You would need to specify a different directory to store the incremental backup in.

You could either select different paths for your different backup types, or you could use the strftime substitution options to add dates into the directory name.
