I am requesting whether a feature can be added so the scheduling of "Backup Copy" jobs has the same options as the "Backup" jobs.
My "Backup Copy" job is set to "copy every 1 day starting at 2:00am." Then under the Schedule section I have selected "during the following time periods only - Tuesday to Saturday 2:00am - 6:69am." That seems to work fine but we are getting a "Backup Copy" job that attempts to start Sunday at 2:00am then fails 47:59 hours later as it cannot run outside of Tuesday to Saturday 2:00am - 6:69am." So we are getting failed backup reports once a week.
A work around has been to disable the "Backup Copy" job and run a scheduled task Tuesday to Saturday at 2:00am starting the "Backup Copy" job:

Hi Adam, does the source backup job start and successfully create a restore point on the day that the backup copy is not allowed to transfer data? In this case the behavior is expected, this is how data transfer window is intended to work (the job fails in case it was not able to copy the restore point within the interval, regardless of the fact it was not allowed to copy data during some period of time).
Veeam Tech 2 suggested I run the following commands as a scheduled task. With the scheduled task run with the highest privileges and as a domain admin I cannot get it to work. The scheduled task runs with no error.
To run every Tuesday at 2:05am Get-VBRJob -Name "USB Backup Copy" | Enable-VBRJob
To run Every Sunday at 1:00am Get-VBRJob -Name "USB Backup Copy" | Disable-VBRJob
If I run the script in PS ISE I get the following error which I believe may occur when the scheduled task runs.
Get-VBRJob : Failed to connect to Veeam Backup & Replication server: Access denied.
Error doesn't occur when running PS ISE as admin and the commands do there job.
The answer is to ignore the failed email alert (unless it can actually be suppressed within the Veeam GUI) until the scheduling of "Backup Copy" jobs is updated to work as the "Copy" job schedule.
