    Hi,

    Is it possible to have different settings for different backup destinations?

    i.e. I want to save incremental backup locally, but compressed backups remotely, on a daily and weekly basis, but compressed backup remotely only a weekly basis.

    When I add another destination I don't have any options to specify when which backups should be made.

    We have been asking for backup features like that for years - if you have a look through the Feature Request site, you will find a variety of requests you could vote for.

    HI @SoftDux

    Actually I don't think that's entirely true, I know there are a lot of backup configuration changes in the works so I wouldn't rule it out as a future option, the feature request system is weighted on votes/user interest as a large part of the decision-making process so the more interest is shown there the more likely things will be implemented.

    We're also exploring alternate backup solutions such as those provided by JetBackup, I'd stay tuned for big improvements in this area.
