FBackup number of logs

Postby angelo_lopes2 » Fri Jan 19, 2018 10:01 am

Hi

Many years ago I found a way to limit the number of logs to 10 via registry on FBackup 4 or 5. I do not recall clear.
Now I had to format the old computer and it keeps increasing the number of backup log files.
Can anyone please point me the registry key needed to add (or to modify the amount..)
Thanks.

Hi,

Limiting the log folder size option is available only in our commercial edition Backup4all.

Thanks for your reply.

I did not mean to limit the log folder size. What I wrote was to limit the number of logs.

I have 5 backups and they all have FBackup version 4.8.289. When I go to AppData\Roaming\Softland\FBackup 4\Logs I have 2 folders always with 10 logs, 1 always with 15 logs, 1 always with 20 logs, and 1 always with 22 logs.
For example the folder with 15 logs, the first log is named FBackup.log, second is named SVHGA_20180116010000.backup.log, and the last one is named SVHGA_20180129010000.backup.log.
This is normas. Tomorrow FBACKups will delete SVHGA_20180116010000.backup.log and I will have a new log named SVHGA_20180130010000.backup.log.

FBackup rewrites the oldest log and keeps this different between backups number of logs. I'm not deleting them.
I would like to standardize the number of logs saved,
