> Hi,
> I have a request regarding the new backup file naming conventions in PVE
> 1.4.  Prior to v1.4, filenames were always the same for each backup run,
> now they include a timestamp.
> While including the timestamp is a great feature, it would be very
> helpful if it were optional.  The backup system that I have built for my
> setup relies on the backup files having a predictable name.  This way my
> scripts can automatically move them into long term storage and do
> whatever else I need.  With the new schema, my backup system is broken.
> Could you please add a control to the backup job configuration screen
> for selecting between some type of predictable naming convention, such
> as vzdump-qemu-{VMID}.tgz, and the new convention that includes
> timestamps, vzdump-qmu-{VMID}-{TIMESTAMP}.tgz?
> Thank you for your consideration of this and for Proxmox!
> Theron
