Is it safe to rename backups?

    Just wondering if any one has successfully renamed a backup in Amon RA recovery and was able to use it. I found some threads about this but they all used clockwork. Sorry for starting a new thread I just don't want my backups to become unusable lol.

    Supposedly You can. I don't rename mine anymore.

    Don't use spaces or odd characters ...I add info prior to the date leaving that intact.

    You should be able to as long as you rename the folder, only (don't rename the img files), and you stick with normal characters, and don't use any spaces. If you want to try, just make a nandroid backup, rename it, then try to restore it. It will fail right away if there's a problem, and you won't lose anything.

    EDIT: Beat me to it :).

    Also, if it is named BCDRS-20110115-0153 like my Amon backups are, then i just keep the file name and add something to it. That way you can always delete what you put and go back in case you need to. Like i named that one
    "BCDRS-20110115-0153myn_rls4_1.14.2011"

    Okay I might try that but I just started making a document to keep with all my Evo stuff on my computer that has all the backup names and what they are. That way I can just look at my computer and tell what everything is.

    I am using the current version of amon ra (atm 2.2.1), and have renamed all of my backups. never had a problem restoring them. i have used periods, underscores, and a plus sign with no problems. definately no spaces
