More information

Scheduler settings for the default backup schemes (single version and version chain) are predefined. You should not change the default backup periodic settings. For disk backups the setting is Monthly, and for file backups - Daily. If you have selected one of the backup schemes and then change the periodic settings (for instance, from Monthly to Weekly), the backup scheme will automatically reset to a custom backup scheme with the incremental method selected. In this case the version chain will consist of a full backup version and a sequence of incremental backup versions.
