Scheduled backups are not placed in individual folders

Postby Oliwa » Thu Mar 22, 2012 11:11 pm

Hey there,

On my Server Options screen I have the "File name format" define as...

<DATABASE>\\<DATABASE>_<TYPE>_<DATETIME yyyymmdd_hhnnss>

But my schedules backups are not placed in a folder per database. All files are placed in the root of the "Backup folder"

Any ideas?

I figured it out. You have to put the <DATABASE> tag on the folder and not the file.
