The Lots Of Restore Points, bookmarks, profiles and what else

Unread post by visionhelp » 2018-02-02, 15:08

Hello,

while using - new - the PMBackup.exe for backup, I have to face the many backups - of bookmarks and profiles and I do not know what else - automatically.

For me - first - it would be enough to have ONE - settings saving, and ONE - backup. Plus a backup of all into an other folder, as PMBackup.exe.
In regard of the PMBackup.exe I would like, to may be able, to do this PMBackups very fast. With having only one saved - settings and bookmarks and what is necessary, and one backup of all. (I am repeating, sorry, plus the backup into an other folder.)
I hope, the description of what I mean is good enough to understand.

Only after doing changes a new saving is necessary, my opinion, at least for me.

(And by the way, having in PaleMoon a function as the PMBackup.exe would be really more smart and elegant. Although I have installed the FEBE Add-On Backup, I - until today - have not been ever in the settings already only, from the lots of things at the first view of the Tools-Menu, 7 single Sub-Points with surely further sub-points to decide and to set and to think about, uh, and still in english. Perhaps it is the english only, but I do not think so.)

Thanks for the attention.

pmbackup is still an excellent tool and you only need to 7-zip/rar your profile folder from time to time.

PMBackup IS excellent.
This to use in addition as security-backup is certain, for me.

But, what is very disturbing and absolutely unnessecary to me, is the lots of automatic backups of bookmarks and settings, which is fast growing to a big collection of on-going-numbered savings.

And PMBackup has also to backup all.

I only need one saving - of bookmarks and settings - and only one backup-file within PaleMoon/NewMoon.
And only from these few savings - in addition - the backup with PMBackup, as second complete backup.
But much, much faster than now, with having to PMBackup so many saved files from within PaleMoon/NewMoon.
