Cron initiated Backup to create multiple generations rather than a single flat file

I am using the cron feature of the XCLONER project, but the Backup name is a fixed name which is overwritten each time I run the Backup. I would like the ability to automatically create a new version each time, as the remove backups after n days allows for control of the backup cycle. I would suggest adding the Date suffix to the fixed file name to enable this to be completed.

We could still just add the backup name as today, but under the covers the suffix be added.

If you leave the backup name empty, a unique name for each backup will be generate automatically...
