Will we ever be able to do 2 types of backup in the same job

Here is a scenario that I would think is pretty common.

I want to backup files from a PC to a "Backup" PC. The "mirror" backup is done weekdays at 10:00. However, I would like to do a full backup on Wednesdays and an incremental backup for the other 4 days of the week. To my knowledge, this cannot be done with one backup job. The reasoning is that most files don't change very often so why do a full backup everyday....but once a week, all the Source selected files should be sent to the destination.

All it would take to accomplish this is for FBackup to delete the two catalog files before starting the backup on Wednesdays! BTW, I would not want to delete the files in the destination before doing the full backup.

Hi,

You cannot do that using FBackup, you need our commercial edition: Backup4all.
