Is there a way to override Hosted Storage backup?

    Hi Luis,

    Thanks for your post. I'm not sure I have understood your question correctly. Do you mean, is it possible to overwrite a backup in a SQL Backup Pro Hosted Storage account by uploading another backup with the same name? The answer to this is no: the upload timestamp is appended to the backup file name, ensuring that each file in a hosted storage account has a unique file name. This means that you can upload multiple backups of the same name (eg "mybackup.sqb") to a Hosted Storage account without overwriting older files.

    I hope that answers your question. Please let me know if you need more information.

    Hi Marianne,

    Thanks for you replay.

    In that case my suggestion, in future releases, is to have override option.

    In my opinion has the same name as backup or not, should be a user decition.
