DriveBackupV2 Backup Naming Format

A date or time pattern letter represents a date or time component, such as the day of week or hour of the day.

If you want to include normal words in some text that accepts date and time pattern letters, you must surround that text with single quotes, and the entirety of the text with double quotes.

Example: "'Backup-world-'yyyy-M-d—HH-mm'.zip'"

The example above will name the file Note that the name ends with .zip, this is to keep the file extension correct.

The format name is always in double quotes "", to specify a name, you put it in single quotes 'name' and to specify a date format you put it without the single quotes or outside of single quotes.
