i am .. the big schedule is to list old versions and cherry pick the
ones to restore

btw. I am still looking for a size info on backed up files. Is it
possible to add this?

my use case has daily backups, monthly fulls, volumesize is 50 MB, a
data size of 1,4GB and dates back 3 months .. the cache folder is 50MB,
i can live with that very well

in this case only few files change, mainly logfiles and such
