Take a look at the answer provided by Tom; should clarify the interval concept for you.

As to backup copy job start time, you can set it five minutes or so after backup jobs start - 16-35.

Thanks.

Sorry still don't understand :?

I have a number of backup jobs daily incremental Mon-Fri, with full Saturday

I would like the backup copy job to only copy the fulls (created Saturday night) to the target, I had the copy every interval set to 1 day and schedule set to anytime, I have now changed copy every interval to 7 days and schedule to enable Sunday 6am - midnight every other time is disabled.

Will this do want I am trying to achieve?

With these settings backup copy will create a restore point each Sunday. Please keep in mind that it doesn't copy the backup file as a whole, but synthetically creates restore point corresponding to the latest VM state available in the source repository.

Thanks all I want to see on the target is a number of full backups and no incremental.

Backup Copy Target is an HPE StoreOnce and the requirement is long term retention of Weekly, Monthly and Yearly fulls I have ticked the box "Keep the following restore points for archival purposes" don't want to see any incremental on there, fast restores provided by DAS.

There will always be at least one increment in the regular backup copy chain though, since the lowest retention you can set is 2. All GFS (archival) restore points you've configured will be fulls.

It will be possible only if you set sync interval to 7 days, enable weekly GFS as well as "read the entire restore point" option. But since you're using daily sync interval, there will be always at least one increment (as Foggy's pointed out). Thanks.
