What convention does Zip Backup to CD use to name backup media? Can the user specify the template for disk names to be used?

The media is labeled with:
YYMMDDHHMM - 0608240712
You can not specify the label. Do you have any suggestion for a format?

The file name can be named by the user and it is possible to include the date (%DATE%) in the file name.

I would just suggest allowing the user the OPTION (instead of your default) of entering their own desired string with which to name the media.

Another suggestion would be to reserve two characters at the end of the media name for a sequential number (1 - 99) to track spanned media.

I would also suggest tracking spanned media in the Catalog, to make it easier to find the disk on which a particular zip file is stored, when restoring files (this will be entered as a separate post).
