I am new to this product and I have to say there is a definite learning curve here. I am currently trying to establish a backup schedule and just can't believe that the product would work this way, so I must be doing something wrong. I would like to use the last Friday closest to the end of the month as my monthly backup, as opposed to using the 1st of every month. For example: my April 2009 monthly would occur on 5/1/2009, my May backup would occur on 5/29/2009 and my June backup would occur on 7/3/09. Doing this would accomplish three things: 1) it would allow me to capture the entire month. 2) I wouldn't be running a full backup during the middle of the week just because its the 1st. 3) I wouldn't be running redundant full backups. Currently if the 1st falls on a Sunday I run another backup. i just ran a full Friday night. seems kinda silly.
That's what I want to do, but it seems like the Backup Express product will not let me pick particular dates to run a Monthly backup. If I pick the 3rd of July it picks the third of every month from now until the end of time. Is there a way to pick only July 3, 2009 and not every 3rd of the month using this product?
Sorry for the long explanation. Any help is appreciated.
