Feature Request - Option to Append Date & Time to Backup

RverDick Member ✭✭
It would save me keystrokes and time (and sometimes I forget) if you would provide an option in Preferences > Backup to Append Date & Time to all Backups.
Because I backup to two different cloud accounts, each with three folders that I rotate, I have to manually check the box to add Date & Time.
An option would be convenient. Obviously not really necessary.
Thank you for considering this request.

    I'm not sure I understand this request.  I tested with Ctrl+B (manual backup) and the "Add date to backup file" and "Also add time to name" stays checked for me.  Now given that the time is limited to minutes one would have to wait for about a minute before starting the backup to get another time.  Also, each data file remembers these settings independently, with the exception of the location, which seems to be shared by all the data files.

    doesn't the [x] checkbox stay sticky between the backups - OR - does it clear when you're changing the "destination"
