How to set the schedule for differential backup so that last differential backup would not be over written
for example
BACKUP DATABASE [Dynamics]
TO  DISK = N'E:\Test BK Diff GP\DYNAMICS_Trn_NewSequentialID().BAK'
WITH  DIFFERENTIAL , NOFORMAT, NOINIT,  
NAME = N'Dynamics-Differential Database Backup',
SKIP, NOREWIND, NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 10
GO

But this command does not work. Its overwritting the prvious differential back. I want to generate the sequence for differential backup like
Diff_BK_1
Diff_BK_2
Diff_BK_3

Thanks

are you sure the previous backups are overwritten and not appended to each other in the same file?
