rename file

Postby omer8364 » Sat May 11, 2013 1:52 am

We have a process that sweeps the folder where the backup files land to move them offsite. We are having problems where the sweep job tries to access the backup files while the backup is still in progress.

If we could rename the backup files after the backup completes, we could configure the sweep job to avoid the in progress files and only sweep files that are complete.

Is there a way to rename the backup file after the backup completes?

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to rename a backup file upon backup completion using SQL Backup.
