Hi Heinz-Josef!

Thanks for your quick response and your good explanation.
I, myself, would have forgotten to rename the deltaCache.
I did the renaming according to your steps and it worked like a charm.

best regards

You can rename a series in the following way:

1. run until all hard links resulting from option lateLinks of are set (only if you used lateLinks)

2. rename the directory (= the series) in your backup and in your deltaCache and your replicas (if you use replication)

3. rename the series name in the same way in your options of the different storeBackup*.pl scripts

Hope this helps and is complete :-)

Is it possible to rename a series?

IMHO it should be possible by renaming the folder corresponding to a series (provided all lateLinks are resolved)
Has anyone second thoughts about renaming a series?

best regards
