SnapCreator builtin scheduler questions

stjerna

Hi,

Is it possible to create a schedule that kicks off a backup, for example, every 3 hours?

Also, let's say you want to back something up at 8 12 16 and midnight - could you create one scheduled job for this?

Or would you, in each of these cases, need to create individual entries for each backup?

Thanks,

Erik

You can use snapcretor to follow cron like scheduling.

Please let me know if that helps.

Thanks,

Hi Siva,

Yeah that helped. I had seen the "cron" menu entry but was under the misconception it had something to do with cron - that it depended on OS cron

and my customer is running Windows...

Now I know better 😉
