I have a linux server that creates a daily folder for each month and year, an example of the path structure would be:

 

2020/Dec/1

2020/Dec/2

2020/Dec/3

2020/Dec/31

2021/Jan/1

2021/Jan/2

… 

2021/Nov/30

2021/Dec/1

2021/Dec/2

… and so on

 

At the beginning of each month  I only want to backup the pervious month. So in early Dec 2021 I want to backup 2021/Nov/* 

 

Can anyone advise on how to do this??

You can use On-Demand Data Protection where you basically specify the content of the backup in a flat text file. How to do this can be found here.

Is there a parent folder that you can set as a new subclient? If you only run incremental backups it would only pickup the changes, but you’d want to run fulls every so often to meet data aging requirements.
