Backup/Restore Avant Browser Profiles enhancement request

I'd like to see some changes to the tool "Backup / Restore Profiles" ...
  • 1. Days to keep backups on the disk: much higher than 30 days, 0 (zero) days or some other special value meaning keep permanently
    2. An indication each where the profile backups were just are stored (drive and folder names), with a button or link that opens the folder (rather than having to go and hunt for it in a somewhat obscure location such as C:\Users\Donald Duck\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\ )
    3. Option to keep the profiles somewhere else, such as another drive (in case of a crash, or a clean reinstall)

"Days to store backups" means how many backups you can keep, not the days the backups can be kept. if you set the number to 7, that means you can keep 7 backups altogether. When you add the eighth backups, the first one will be deleted automatically .
2. An indication each where the profile backups were just are stored (drive and folder names), with a button or link that opens the folder (rather than having to go and hunt for it in a somewhat obscure location such as C:\Users\Donald Duck\AppData\Roaming\Avant Profiles\profile.backup\ )

You can see and change the location of your avant profiles in Tools>AB options> Profiles

Xie xie, xiaobing, thanks for your reply.
You said: "Days to store backups" means how many backups you can keep, not the days the backups can be kept.

That is, it states one thing but means something else. Therefore you definitely MUST change the text to "Number of backups to keep" so that it says what it actually means!

Xiaobing,

It has been 5 years already and I still don't see the change to "Number of backups" instead of "Number of days" so that it says what it actually means.

This is so misleading for users at present. Is there a reason why the text can't be amended?
