Backup history

Backup history is a composition of backups, performed during the recent period. It is a good idea to keep the backup history if it turns out that some file was damaged some time ago before recent backups. Usually backup rotation schedules, like Grandfather-father-son and Tower of Hanoi, handle this easily. Handy Backup allows keeping a full backup history, but does not support backup rotation schedules.
