Hi,

I have a customers site where we use the default backup feature of SBS2008 to backup Monday to Friday but this is causing issues as it runs all week and through weekends.

We rotate the drives mon-fri but not on weekends and this seems to be where issues lie, the drive does not backup on the Sunday and causes any backups afterwords to fail.

Is there anyway to just  configure a Monday to Friday backup with the default SBS2008 backup?

The windows backup will be controlled by the Task Scheduler.

After you configure the backup job, then go into the Windows Task Scheduler area and edit the backup job schedule.
