backup more frequently than 1/day

Is there any way to backup more frequently than once/day when using Veeam Backup Repository?

I've tried to set it to 'when backup destination detected' assuming it would check every X minutes for the Backup Repository and kick off if timer was less than Y (12 hours for example,) but it either doesn't work or I didn't wait long enough.

Anyone know this answer? I'll stop looking if it isn't possible. If it isn't possible, consider this a request.. daily is an arbitrary value. Whats wrong with every 12 hours, for instance, when using a backup repository?

Thanks,

There are ways to do it...

1. On an event detection with the setting no backups more than x hours (for example, logon, logoff or detection of the USB device) but that might not be good in your case since it won't exactly match every 12 hours or so...

2. Use task scheduler. You can call a backup through commandline and therefore you can schedule it with task scheduler :-)

Ahh very nice, yes, I like the task scheduler idea, as I have no qualifying event detection. Anyone have the syntax on calling a backup from task scheduler (CL) ?
