Backup Schedule

Post by Andy_Morgan » Oct 26, 2016 12:39 pm

Would it be possible to configure a shedule to preform a overnight full backup(evereynight) with 2 incremental backups during the day for example at 10am and 2pm with a full backup at 10pm. with each overnight backup being retained for 7 days?

Only via PowerShell scripting, I believe. Two scripts: one taking place at 10 am and 2 pm and initiating incremental run, the other - at 10 pm issuing a full backup cycle.

As to retention, it takes into account number of restore points, not number of days.

Or you can enable this option (do full backups every day), but schedule your backup job to run every day after midnight (for example, at 1 am) and use the command line from the summary page to start backup job at 10 am and 2 pm using Windows Task Scheduler.

Please note that in order to make it work, you will need to start your backup job at 1 am first.
