RFE: Paramenter for number of files backed up

Post by Todd »

From the old Backup:
2021-12-05 00:55 ** Backup done for the task "xxxx". Errors: 0. Processed files: 74342. Backed up files: 74311. Total size: 112.48 GB **
I am thinking of starting to use the "Body Text" feature to get around the short attention spans of customer not reading their backup reports. Would you please consider adding a "Parameter" for the number of "Backed up files"? `%BACKEDUPFILES` would work.

I would use it like such:

Code: Select all

%COMPUTERNAME: Cobian reflector backup report for %TASKNAME:
    Errors:          %ERRORS
    Backed up files: %BACKEDUPFILES

If
     1)  "Errors" are GREATER THAN ZERO, and/or
     2)  "Backed up files" are ZERO, 

please contact your I.T. Support
I also plan on putting errors in the subject line.

Have tried, but there is no sure way to obtain the number of files. The number of errors is found by counting the ERR header. The number of files could be anywhere in dependence of the translation.

Is that different from Cobian Backup, which did report the number of file?

There I think it was reported as the number of files at the moment, which meant..that strange things would happen if the user selected to mail daily at a time where no backup was being done. The number would be always 0.
