5. In the New Backup Schedule window, configure the following settings:
Here is an example of a backup set that has a periodic and normal backup schedule.
Figure 1.1 – Periodic backup schedule runs every 4 hours from Monday – Friday during business hours for Archived Log backup
Figure 1.2 – Normal backup schedule runs at 21:00 or 9:00 PM every Sunday during non-business hours for Database backup
The number of hours must be enough to complete a backup of all files in the backup set. For small files in a backup, if the number of hours is not enough to back up all files, then the outstanding files will be backed up in the next backup job. However, if the backup set contains large files, this may result in partially backed up files.
For example, if a backup has 100GB file size which will take approximately 15 hours to complete on your environment, but you set the “stop” after 10 hours, the file will be partially backed up and cannot be restored. The next backup will upload the files from scratch again.
The partially backed up data will have to be removed by running the data integrity check.
As a general rule, it is recommended to review this setting regularly as the data size on the backup machine may grow over time.
6. Before closing the Backup Schedule menu, click the Save button to apply the backup schedule settings.
