To edit a normal backup schedule:

  1. Go to your Control Panel's Smart Servers menu.
  2. Click the label of the Smart Server you want to schedule a backup for.
  3. Click the Storage tab, then select Disks.
  4. On the screen that appears, click the Actions button next to the disk you want to back up, then select Schedule for Backups.
  5. Click the Edit icon next to a schedule to change its details.
  6. Specify schedule details:

    • Frequency - how frequently the backup will take place according to the period set. For example, duration of 2 and a period of days will take a backup every 2 days
    • Period - backup period: days, weeks, months or years. Period must be unique for each backup target (disk or server).
    • Rotation period  - number of backups after which the first backup will be deleted.

      Despite of the input value, for normal backups (when Disk is the target) rotation period is always 1. Thus, only 1 normal auto-backup with specific frequency, period and target will be stored in the system.

    • Start time - set the exact time of creating the transaction for backups scheduling. The transaction will be created at the specified time but run according to the queue (the transactions created earlier or with higher priority will be launched first).

    • Enabled - move the slider to enable or disable the schedule

  7. Click the Save button to finish.

    • Frequency - how frequently the backup will take place according to the period set. For example, duration of 2 and a period of days will take a backup every 2 days
    • Period - backup period: days, weeks, months or years. Period must be unique for each backup target (disk or server).
    • Rotation period  - number of backups after which the first backup will be deleted. This parameter is for incremental backup schedules only.
    • Start time - set the exact time of creating the transaction for backups scheduling. The transaction will be created at the specified time but run according to the queue (the transactions created earlier or with higher priority will be launched first).
