Summary

Backup Scheduler Fails for longer intervals.

Description of the issue

FileMaker Product(s) involved: FMS9Operating System(s) involved: OSX 10.4.xDetailed description of the issue:The Backup task scheduler has a "every n days" option. Setting n to be >7 days does not get you the correct days.Exact steps to reproduce the issue:Go to backup scheduler; and at the "Select the interval in days" step; type in 28. Hit NEXTExpected Result:The script executes  a backup every 28 days.Actual ResultThe 28 silently reverts to 1.Workaround:NoneComment:While you should run hourly and daily backups; there is a good cause to also run longer intervals as well. If vital records are lost, it may be days before someone notices. With longer interval backups; you can go back & extract the missing/deleted record and import it to the current dataset.
