Automatic pathnames for Grandfathered backups
baklabel is designed for use in automated scripts to deliver a sensible directory path fragment (or label) each day to construct a grandfathered local backup destination. It can also be run as a stand-alone utility to find the backup label produced for any given date and set of options.
Run baklabel.py -h to see command line usage options.
Call baklabel directly or import it and produce labels from your code.
Python 2.6, 2.7 and 3.x
In the docs directory after installing, see release_note.txt for more detail on the package, instructions.txt for baklabel output examples and backup_howto.txt for a complete example backup script for Windows.
