Feature request about scheduling full and differential backu

Post by m.novelli »

Hello, I love the Veeam incremental CBT backups, but once a week I would like to perform a full backup to be safer

I would like to be able to set different scheduled times for incremental and full backups: for instance incremental backup every night at 2.00 and full backup at saturday afternoon or sunday morning

Thanks,

Marco

Marco, thanks again for the feedback!

To achieve what you want I would suggest creating 2 Windows scheduled task to start the job from command line, one task for weekdays, and another one for Saturday and Sunday.

Your weekdays job should be started using this PowerShell cmdlet:

Code: Select all

Start-VBRJob JobName
And here is a weekend run:

Code: Select all

Start-VBRJob JobName -FullBackup
By the way, we will have monthly full backup schedule available directly in the product with v5!

Hope it helps!
