I want to setup a couple of backup job for our servers through Acronis True Image server. these backup jobs will be monthly full backup which starts the first day of the month and re-start on another 1st day of next month. those jobs are separate which means not override. All the backup jobs will accumulate until the backup disk is full, then I'm going to remove the oldest backup jobs and let new ones in. like say, job1 for server01 of this month will shows " server01_June01_backup", next month, it'll shows" server01_July01_backup", So is there anyway I can put time stamp into backup job, and let Acronis run it automatically. Thanks a lot.

Hey! If I understand right, you want to have the date automatically inserted into the backup .tib file name, correct? Check out my answer to this question.

the format is backupname[date].tib or whatever you want it to be. Just make sure "[date]" without quotes is somewhere in there.

As far as I can see this doesn't hold for Backup & Recovery 10 (the next generation of True Image). Still looking for a new solution.
