So when the task runs, it will delete the folder mentioned in index1 (but this time it doesn't exist).
Then it renames index2 to index1
Then it creates a new index2 with the name of the backup its going to take.
Then it takes a backup.
To clarify, index2 is always newest backup. Index1 is always the next one to be deleted.
Deletes oldest backup
Renames newest backup to oldest backup
Creates new newest backup.
Its hard to describe. Hope it makes sense
