[docs] prune explanation wrong?


#1

Another example: Suppose you make daily backups for 100 years. Then forget --keep-daily 7 --keep-weekly 5 --keep-monthly 12 --keep-yearly 75 will keep the most recent 7 daily snapshots, then 4 (remember, 7 dailies already include a week!) last-day-of-the-weeks and 11 or 12 last-day-of-the-months (11 or 12 depends if the 5 weeklies cross a month). And finally 75 last-day-of-the-year snapshots. All other snapshots are removed.

Of the –keep-yearly 75 setting, isn’t there at least 1 yearly snapshot in for example the –keep-daily 7 setting?
So shouldn’t it be 74 yearly snapshots + all the other ones of the first year?

It might be nitpicking here but I’m just trying to completely understand what’s going on :slight_smile:

Hm, I think you’re right. Are you up for a pull request? :slight_smile:


#3

Tbh, I never created one and frankly wouldn’t know where to start to change something in the docs
