Schedule daily full Backups?

Is it possible to schedule daily Full Backups?

I ask because I backup to removable HDs and I used to do a full backup every day, so in case one HD breaks, I have 4 more full copies with current file versions.
The way I see it, if I spread the incremental backups around, then only one broken disk makes it impossible to restore a full backup.

Or are full backups a "pro" feature?

Hi,

You can do that by scheduling Windows Task Scheduler to run a script that triggers VEB via commandline. Please take a look at this article.

Thanks

Thanks!

I will try to do an incremental backup on a network share plus the full backup on rdx drive, because paranoia.
Let's see how many hours that will take. :)

Cheers!
