Summary

Can File Size keep an Hourly Back Up Schedule from being Hourly?

Product

FileMaker Server

Version

13.05

Operating system version

Windows Server 2008 R2 standard service pack 1

Description of the issue

see image from admin console listing the back up schedule details. As far as I can tell, it's correctly set up to back up files once every hour. But the back ups are being performed once every day.

The only unusual factor I can spot is that one of the files is nearly 20 GB in size. (Just figured out that a contractor that created the file used a text field to create the equivalent of embedded container data in a 50,000 record table...)

But checking the log shows that the schedule, while running only once a day is taking less than 4 minutes to run.

Progressive back ups are also failing.
