[listfiles path=databases/][showif [isfile]=T][COPYFILE from=databases/[filename]&to=db_daily_archives/[listwords words=[filename]&delimiters=.][showif [index]=1][word]_[date %A_%p][/showif][showif [index]=2].[word][/showif][/listwords]][/showif][/listfiles]
Write a trigger to run the script 2 times a day and change the path to your DB directory. This copies all .db & .hdr files to an archive folder with the day and AM or PM. You will get a morning and evening backup of each file in your DB folder. Each week the script overwrites the files with the new ones. Example.db would be saves as: Example_Monday_AM.db Example_Monday_PM.db Example_Tuesday_AM.db etc.
