Archive based on age

  • Does PA (preferably the CL version) have the facility to archive files based on an age?

    (I want to be able to move a quantity of files out of a folder and into an archive if (and only if) they’re over 35 days old.

    I have an ancient copy of ARJ that can do this (via the -odb switch) but I’d like to use PA, and can’t work out if it’s possible.

    If you use regular PA, you can create a backup job (.pbs file) and one of the option is a time (and size) filter. You can set a specific date – or specify files created or changed in the last x number of hours, days, etc. (see the attached image)
