File-level Backups

File-level backups


 

The scheduling parameters of a file-level backup depend on the backup destination.

With any destination, you can set a date range for when the schedule is effective. Select the Run backup plan within a date range check box, and then specify the date range.


When backing up to cloud storage

By default, backups are performed on a daily basis. You can select the days of the week and the time to run the backup.

If you want to change the backup frequency, move the slider, and then specify the backup schedule.

PLEASE NOTE:
The first backup is full, which means that it is the most time-consuming. All subsequent backups are incremental and take significantly less time.
When backing up to a local or network folder

You can choose one of the predefined backup schemes or create a custom scheme. A backup scheme is a part of the backup plan that includes the backup schedule and the backup methods.

In
 Backup scheme, select one of the following:

Always full

  • By default, backups are performed on a daily basis, Monday to Friday. You can modify the days of the week and the time to run the backup.
  • If you want to change the backup frequency, move the slider, and then specify the backup schedule.
  • All backups are full.

Weekly full, Daily incremental
 (default)
  • By default, backups are performed on a daily basis, Monday to Friday. You can modify the days of the week and the time to run the backup.
  • A full backup is created once a week. All other backups are incremental. The day on which the full backup is created depends on the Weekly backup option (click the gear icon, then Backup options > Weekly backup).

Custom

  • Specify schedules for full, differential, and incremental backups.
  • Differential backup is not available when backing up SQL data, Exchange data, or system state.
