    I want set my server to backup all my account (daily+weekly) only.
    and the weekly backup run on SUNDAY.
    Currunt Backup Configure is:
    Backup Status: Enabled
    Backup Interval Daily
    Backup Retention Daily Weekly
    Days to run backup Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday
    Remount/Unmount backup drive: Disabled
    Bail out if the backup drive cannot be mounted: Disabled
    Incremental backup: Disabled
    Backup Accounts: Enabled
    Backup Config Files: Enabled
    Sql Databases: Per Accounts Only
    Backup Raw Access Logs: Disabled
    Backup Type: Standard

    I want ask about 4th figure:
    Days to run backup Sunday Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday

    Is this figure for the daily backup or to set the day for the weekly one?
    bcz i do choose from 3rd line (Daily) and Weekly
    if i choose sunday only is this mean weekly backup will run in sunday only?
    (this is what iam looking for)

    iam asking bcz my Backup HardDrive is 75% full (80GB)

    Thank you>

    It is for the daily backup.

    I do not think you have the option to choose which day the weekly gets run.

    If you only pick for instance sunday then you will not be doing a daily backup but instead only be doing the backup every sunday.
