Daily[edit]

  1. Enter in how many days between each execution of the task
  2. Check the Repeat task: checkbox (if you want to execute the task more than once a day)
    Repeat Every: This allows you to execute the scheduled task every X number of Minutes or Hours
    For: This allows you to repeat the for a X number of Minutes or Hours within in the day

Examples:

  • To execute a backup once a day, you set your Start values and then Recur Every to 1, uncheck Repeat task
  • To execute a backup twice a day, every 8 hours, you set your Start values and then check the Repeat Task check box. Next set you Repeat Every value to 8 Hours and you For value to "20 Hours"
    Mote if you start the scheduled task to start after 8:00am you will only get one back up. The firsat back up will occur when scheduled, the second 8 hours later and the third
    will not execute because you have gone into the next day
