Use numeric backup date format

Recommended Posts


Please change the date format used for the naming of the backup folders. The current format is totally useless and makes searching for backups really difficult.

The current format is (see screenshot)

Fri Oct 20 2017

Since I have lots of backups made on fridays, they all get sorted first regardless of the year or actual date. Since when is it of importance that the backup are sorted based on day of the week?

Please use YYYY_MM_DD as the standard format, for ex:


because this date format will allow sorting in chronological order and NOT day of the week.
