Is it possible to rename a backup object?
Is is possible to rename a backup object on the 50g? The filer seems to be refusing to cooperate.

Not in one step, no. But you can do it in two easy steps: use the Filer to Copy it to the same port, using the "REN" (rename) option, and then delete the original one.

RE: Is it possible to rename a backup object?
Thanks. I didn't understand why the filer doesn't support renaming backup objects since it seems to be able to rename everything else I tried.

I was thinking about versioning backups but I would probably end up with a huge bunch of files that I had no way of knowing what they contained.

Time to write some source control for the 50g...

Hello,

> I was thinking about versioning backups
Check this out for a 49G version that I made a long time ago:

Direct download link:

It is not adjusted for the larger screen of the 50g but it does exactly what you are looking for.

HTH,
Andreas
