Hi everyone,

in my configuration I use a fairly extensive configuration for keeping older backups. In essence, I want storeBackup to keep as much backups as possible, as long as there is backup space available.

So this is what's in my config file:
keepRelative= 1h 2h 3h 4h 1d 2d 3d 4d 5d 6d 7d 14d 21d 30d 60d 90d 120d 150d 180d 210d 240d 270d 300d 330d 365d 730d 1095d 1460d 1825d 2190d 2555d 2920d 3285d 3650d 4015d

Obviously, I don't backup that often (I just want storeBackup to keep backups just in case), so I get lots of warnings of these types:

  • no backup for period 2d to 3d, choosing next older backup instead
  • no backup for period 3d to 4d, choosing oldest backup instead.
  • There will be no backup for period 300d to 330d in 219.1 days.

The high number of warnings makes checking backup logs unnecessarily complicated if one wants to make sure no other warning gets overlooked.

What I've done is added an option "no_backup_for_period" to the "-suppressWarning" parameter. A patch is attached.
