Backup Schedules

I want to create the following 3 backup jobs with the following retention plans.

Daily - MTWT - Retain 4

Weekly - F - Retain 4

Monthly - First day fo the month - Retain 1

Is it possible to NOT take the daily or Weekly backup if and when it falls on the monthly schedule? 

Re: Backup Schedules

My advice?  Let both happen.  They'll be tagged differently, and the daily will cycle out after the retention period expires anyway.  I would schedule the monthly at a different time than the others to avoid contention.

To answer your question directly, I do not believe there is a way to avoid that scenario.  Let me double-check, and if I find out differently, I'll report back!
