Luckybackup: can I name the backups (folders) by date?


In Luckybackup, it would be helpful if I could use the date as the name of the folder for a backup set. A bit quicker than right-clicking the folder and looking at the Properties. I'm looking through the options, but haven't found a way to make the backup folder automatically receive a new name. The backups will all have the same name as the source.

I haven't used that program but dag gum it if many of the backup programs also do that same silly deal. I have to rename or move stuff after I backup. Might ask the developers of luckbackup to put in that option.

Should be possible to take sources and edit it if you have enough time and know how.
