This conversation has been merged. Please reference the main conversation: Lightroom: Set Maximum # Of Catalog Backups, and Auto-Replace Oldest
Would it be possible to introduce an option to limit the number of backup copies. By that I mean the user could tick a box to limit the number and select how many copies of their catalogue they wish to keep. The programme would keep track of this and delete older copies automatically, or at least give the user a prompt to say "OK, bin them!"
For me the "perfect" implementation would have two aspects:
Firstly, an option to retain, for example, the latest four daily backups then, say, weekly backups of the last month, and perhaps a few monthly backups. This would give a reasonable buffer if anything did go wrong big style.
Secondly, the option to save backups and catalogue to two different locations (i.e. drives) simultaneously.
Thanks for your consideration folks, and an even bigger thank you for LR! It's awesome! :o)
