for the backup of our 3gb ERP solution with 7 files and lots of "external data folder' I would like that filemaker server writes a copy at midnight to a folder WITH ALWAYS THE SAME name.


Nowadays the backup folder have a time stamp name NAME-YYYY-MM-DD-HHMM.

For this backup I would like a Fixed Name.


If you backup this to AWS S3 for example, it will always override everything, since the path changed on the root giving you high cost (amazon charges per IO request and Data throughput).

If I could get FMS to overwrite always the same files backups would be much easier, be it done with Chronosync, S3 or whatever.

Thanks for you input.
