The plan for delete and keep snapshots is split into three parts:

  • this week
  • this month
  • previous months

Selecting the button Plan only evaluates and suggests which snapshots to delete based upon the plan. Deleting snapshots is a destructive operation and should be performed with care.

Snapshots to keep

All snapshots to keep are tagged this week, Sunday this month or last Sunday month.

This week and month:

  • in the current week (this week): keep all snapshots
    • snapshots are tagged with this week
  • in the current month (this month): for all weeks in the current month exclude current week, keep all snapshots each Sunday
    • snapshots marked for delete are tagged this month
    • snapshots to keep are tagged Sunday this month

To delete the suggested snapshots press the Delete button.

Previous months:

  • in previous months: keep snapshots last Sunday each month.
    • snapshots marked for delete are tagged prev months
    • snapshots to keep are tagged last Sunday month

The Plan button is available after selecting a task and RsyncOSX has collected info about snapshots from remote server. The following snapshots are not marked for delete (see rules below).

  • 28 October 2018 is the last Sunday in October
  • 25 November 2018 is the last Sunday in November
  • 2, 9, 16 and 23 December 2018 are all Sundays in this month
  • 24, 25 and 26 December are days in this week.
