Name of P&G file should show database
« on: April 22, 2022, 06:02:07 PM »
I request that will interest few people (those with more than one db):
(But which might be easy to accomplish!)

The name of the P&G file should have the name of the db appended.

Why don't you use one folder per database for Pack & Go?
The name of the source database(s) is shown when you run a Verify.
Pack & Go restores the database to the original name (and location) unless you change the corresponding options.

That's what I do but....
It means entering the folder every time I run P&G on another db.

and

When I make an offsite backup disk of all images I also include a copy of P&G and
the Imatch source file.
This is where I would have to create a folder for each P&G file to indicate the db or
(and that's what I do) I rename the P&G file by adding the db name.
