If the maximum number of size based backups is reached (curSizeRollBackups == maxSizeRollBackups) then the oldest file is deleted -- its index determined by the sign of countDirection. If countDirection < 0, then files {File.1, ..., File.curSizeRollBackups -1} are renamed to {File.2, ..., File.curSizeRollBackups}.

If maxSizeRollBackups is equal to zero, then the File is truncated with no backup files created.

If maxSizeRollBackups < 0, then File is renamed if needed and no files are deleted.

This is called by RollOverSize to rename the files.
