    Hi Voronich ,

    In the OP, given

    1. Convert the snapshot dir's datetime name to epoch 2. In the trip script apply the epochs to a parabolic function: y = x^ +2
    x is the epoch equivalent of the directorys' timestamp and y is the value on which the decision to backup (or not) is made - as determined by applying the function to the epoch.

    Is that of any help ?

    A user level that continues to overstate my experience :-))
