Backup Schedule Options for Laptop Plans

Deprecated: After Service Pack 11 is installed, schedules will not be displayed on new plans. For plans created prior to Service Pack 11, you can continue to update the plan schedules.

The following options are available for schedules on Laptop Plans. Schedules determine when backup jobs run for end-user devices.

Backup level

  • Incremental: Backs up the portion of the data that is new or that has changed since the last backup.
  • Full: Backs up all data.
  • Synthetic Full: Creates a full backup from the most recent full backup and all subsequent incremental backups. The resulting synthetic full backup is identical to a full backup. A synthetic full backup does not transfer data from a device to the storage pool and does not use resources on the device.

Frequency

  • Automatic

    Runs the backup job when user-defined conditions are met. Choose the minimum and maximum backup job intervals:

    • Min. job interval: The number of hours between backup jobs if the user-defined conditions are met.
    • Max. jobs interval: The number of hours between backup jobs if the user-defined conditions are not met. The time calculation between backup jobs starts after the last successful backup job is complete.
    • Number of Days between Synthetic Full Backups: Available if Synthetic full is selected as the backup level. The number of days between synthetic full backup jobs.

    The following are the conditions that trigger an automatic backup job:

    • Under Job Interval, you can set the following:
      • Minimum Sync Interval: For devices using the Sync Folder feature, the number of hours and minutes between file synchronization.
      • Ignore operation window at Maximum interval: Ignores the operation window rules for the time period specified in the Max. jobs interval box and continues the backup job. For information on operation window rules, see Creating an Operation Window Rule.
    • Under Network Management, you can set the following:
      • Use only wired network: Starts the job when the network connectivity is wired.
      • Min. Network Bandwidth n Kbps: The minimum number of kilobits per second (kbps) that the job should use for the network bandwidth. By default the minimum bandwidth is 128.
      • Use only specific network: Starts a backup job using a specific network. Add the network address.
    • Under Power Management, you can set the following:
      • Start only if the computer is running on A/C power: Runs the backup job only when the computer is on A/C power.
      • Stop the task if battery mode begins: Stops the backup job if the computer is on battery mode.
      • Prevent computer from going to sleep if any jobs are running: Prevents the device from entering enter sleep mode when a backup job is running.
    • Under Resource Utilization, you can set the following:
      • Start only if CPU utilization is below n %: Runs the backup job when CPU utilization is below the specified percentage.
    • Under File Management, you can set the following:
      • Start job only if there are files to be backed up: Runs the job if there are new files or if the files have been modified.
  • Daily

    Runs the backup job on a daily basis. Choose the start time. Under Repeat, you can set the following:

    • Every: The number of days between each backup job.
    • Repeat Every: The number of hours and minutes between each backup job.
    • until: If Repeat Every is defines, the end time for repeating the backup job.
    • Exceptions: Defines the days of the month to exclude from the schedule. For example, you can excludes the third Sunday of the month from the schedule.
  • Weekly

    Runs the backup job on a weekly basis. Choose the start time and the days of the week. Under Repeat, you can set the following:

    • Every: The number of weeks between each backup job.
    • Repeat Every: The number of hours and minutes between each backup job.
    • until: If Repeat Every is defines, the end time for repeating the backup job.
    • Exceptions: Defines the days of the month to exclude from the schedule. For example, you can excludes the third Sunday of the month from the schedule.
  • Monthly

    Runs a job on a monthly basis. Choose the start time and the day of the month. Under Repeat, you can set the following:

    • Every: The number of months between each backup job.
    • Repeat Every: The number of hours and minutes between each backup job.
    • until: If Repeat Every is defines, the end time for repeating the backup job.
    • Exceptions: Defines the days of the month to exclude from the schedule. For example, you can excludes the third Sunday of the month from the schedule.
