Requested new Backup option - On Quitting only Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Just dropping a copy of an email I sent to the support ninjas in here so others know about it and maybe have comments and/or suggestions. Happy to have flaws in my thinking pointed out.

I would like to request an extra option in the set of backup options.

Because I need to carry OF between different machines I have set up a set of folder actions to create extra copies of the files saved into the OF backup folder into iDisk and thumb drives.

Apart from the preference saving issue already raised by others the remaining quirk is the fact that the only available backup options are once or twice a day along with backup on quitting. I can't have backup on quitting without the time based backup. This is annoying.

Because of the time based backup opening OF on a new machine it may or may not throw a backup depending on timing. This means I have to think about which backup to restore from to have an effectively sync from the last machine.

If I could please have an option to backup on quitting WITHOUT the time based backup this quirk would go away and I could reliably sync from the most recent backup file.

Could you please add an option to allow me to have a backup created ONLY on quitting without also agreeing to the annoying time-based backup.

Many thanks for OF and the opportunity to participate in the sneaky peek.
