asked on

server 2011 multiple backup schedules

Hi All,

Just wondering if there is any way to have more than 1 Backup scheduled in SBS2011.

I would like to have an internal drive dedicated as a backup and also a single USB external that only runs week around.

Reason for the internal drive is the office members are too unreliable to bring backups back and forth to the office so the internal drive makes for easy restore when they constantly 'accidently' delete files.

At the moment i cant get the server to utilise the external drive when it is plugged in, I noticed there is a few sites mentioning using the Task Scheduler with a command line entry to run the extra backup ... but ide rather use the GUI... is there any other way? should i set the USB as the main backup and when its not connected automatically use the internal? but will it revert to the USB when it is plugged in?

Any Ideas?

Are you using Windows Backup or the back in the SBS Console?

Backup from the SBS Console
So you want to use the USB drive for one back up a week and the internal drive for all the rest?  Will these be at the same times or different times?
Generally i would want the internal backup running 2x per day .. 11AM & 11PM, The USB Backup needs to be set to run between say 12PM and 4PM once per week on a Friday would be the easiest!
