    I am currently using NT Backup to run "Normal" backups M-F. This is great other than the next week it will overwrite the previous weeks backukp. Right now I am backing up a folder called c:\Data and it backs up to a folder called D:\Backup\Monday, D:\Backup\Tuesday and so on...Like I had said before this is great for the first week it puts the file "backup.bkf" in the Monday, Tuesday and so on folders. But in the following weeks it will overwrite the files.

    Is there a way to have it name the files in Monday's folder called "backup.bkf","backup1.bkf","backup2.bkf", and "backup3.bkf" that way I can have a full months worth of backups. If anyone knows any help would be appreciative....
