Re-naming backup tasks & tib backup files-- 2016-2015
Task name can be assigned or adjusted during creation or renamed afterwards and the new task name will become the task name and the name of the next tib backup file. Backups created prior to any rename will remain original name.
The task name is the base name. The tib backup file derives its name from the task name. The progam adds the required suffix or _type_B1_S1_V1.tib
2016 version: Renaming a 2016 task name can occur via right clicking the task name and choosing the new rename option.
2015 version: Renaming a 2015 task name can occur via selecting the task, and choosing "edit settings" and clicking the pencil icon beside the task name along the top of the display screen. The name changes must be saved in order to be finalized.
Additional options: The date and time macro from 2014 and prior versions does NOT exist in 2015 or 2016
but can be added via a workaround created by user "TOMB" if you are willing to modify the actual backup script (.tib.tis) file stored in the scripts folder. The edit is performed inside NOTEPAD or other ascii text editor as described below. On my computer, I can RIGHT CLICK on the selected "tib.tis" file and choose 'EDIT" and the file auto opens into Notepad.
Script editing details below.
Path to scripts folder: c:\programdata\Acronis\TrueImageHome\Scripts\
The colored code next can be copied/pasted into Notepad to replace the existing @task@.tib" located inside the script. Note the presence of the required closing parenthesis.
Again. Thanks to this script editing idea suggested by user TOMB.
I believe either upper case or lower case will work.
The required is a beginning and ending @
I felt some clarity needed so I used the underscore as a separator but this is optional.
The dash or equal sign are also optional usage.
The period cannot be used.
Optionally, you can also use words/names, etc.
For testing, it is really quick and easy to create a test task which backs up one single small text file and using the
"Back up now" consumes only a few seconds to see an exact sample of what you are configuring to be added.
