Filter for old WhatsApp backups #904
Since SD Maid beta v4.7.2 we have an "age" filter. This finally allows us to make a filter that deletes old WhatsApp backups.
I've made a more tweaks and the current version is this:
What we need to test:
This is how it works
The filter looks like this
Thanks for the tweaks and the explanation!
And, perhaps, for improve the UX, it could be a good idea to use an alternative to the milliseconds. Specially with lapses bigger than a day or two.
Using the WhatsApp example, there can be backups made on weekly or monthly basis, and at least IMHO, calculate the ms of such time span is not so accessible... Of course! I can be wrong, and it's just an "issue" for me.
So, what do you think?
Miliseconds is the finest resolution that is possible. Of course I can change that to hours or days, but maybe someone else needs this kind of accuracy. So we would probably need a few additional UI elements to allow entering different time spans days/hours etc. It would be nice to have, but would it be worth the effort? Maybe something for the lower end of the TODO list
