    Hello, when i have incremental or compressed/uncompressed backup set Daily, Weekly and Monthly. Does that mean that there are days where backup run 2 or 3 times at same time?

    example, have daily backup on monday ticked, and weekly backup is ticked on monday too.

    Monday will be backed up on Monday, and the Weekly backup will also be generated, Weekly, during the same backup processing when backups are configured to run.

    Hello :)

    The daily backups are copied to the weekly backup directory if they are scheduled for generation on the same day (if the existing weekly backups are older than one week).

    Thank you.
