Best way to schedule weekly backups?

Post by TaylorB » Feb 17, 2011 6:49 pm

For about 2/3 of our VMs, I only need to maintain a weekly backup. Ideally this would be a full backup. I don't see a clear way to do this with Veaam Backup (v5.0.1)

Any help on picking settings? RIght now I picked Incremental with weekly active full backups. I set Saturday for the active fulls and only scheduled the backups for Saturday. Does that seem right?

Yes, looks good to me. Incremental or reversed incremental setting should not matter with this schedule and active (non-synthetic) full backup. Thanks.
