I'll give you a quick summary. In v1.1, it applied to _all_ scheduled backups. So, I could set up daily backup at 2:00am, for example, and set it to back up no more than every 6 days. It would back up the first night, we'll call that Day 0. Each night after that, it would check, but it would not run another backup until Day 6. If I ran a manual backup on Day 9, it would then reset the 6-day counter and run the next backup on Day 15 (rather than on Day 12). That was nice, so I didn't get extra backups, but not critical. However, if a computer was turned off or disconnected from the network at backup time, the backup would check the following night at the scheduled time and the backup would complete. Now, if I schedule backups every Monday, for example, and the computer is off or disconnected from the network at the scheduled backup time, the backup doesn't run until the following monday, when the scheduled time comes up again. What's the solution to that? Set it to "Backup once powered on", right? So now, as soon as the user turns on the computer in the morning, it starts a backup, which slows them down. Or, they stop by the office quick to sync some files or print a document and the backup starts, meaning they need to sit there until it completes. Or, and this is the biggest issue, they connect via the VPN from home and the backup starts to run, using up all of the bandwidth at the office and running for hours before finally failing.
OK, so that wasn't such a quick summary, but it covers the basics. And the solution to all of this? Probably remove an if-then statement in the code so that the "Back up no more often" setting applies to _all_ backups, not just the event backups. Maybe it's more complicated than that, but I don't see who it would hurt to have that active. Besides, when I do create a daily backup, here is how the schedule is described in the summary screen in VAW v2.0:
Daily at [01:30 AM]
If computer is shutdown at this time: [backup once powered on]
Once backup is taken, computer should: [keep running]
Backup no more often than every [6 Days]
That certainly _looks_ like the "Backup no more often" applies to the schedule that I've created, but according to the documentation, it will not. I was hoping that the documentation was not updated, but that the program was.
Does that make sense? I see you're listed at Veeam Software in your info. Does that mean that this is something that you can discuss with the developers?
