Zip folder every nite with Date tag keeping 5 generations.

Good Day-

I need to zip a folder every nite for backup.  I'm using Carbonite end point and I need to take a full backup of the folder every nite.  So, I would need to keep 5 generations of the entire contents of the folder with a date tag as follow:


It would be ideal to delete older folders than 5 days old to avoid clogging up the hard drive.

OS is Windows 10 Pro.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

I use KLS Backup for that type of task.
In my screenshot I keep the last 12 Zip Backup Archives. Older ones are deleted.
KLS SETTINGS(I could have chosen to delete zips older than a certain number of days).

The DBCopyForBackup_mm/dd/yy part is also easy to do.
