Please help me tweak/optimize my Backups.
I had a Hard Drive fail, I was able to fully recover but I want to improve on my Backups from what I learned during the recovery/reinstalling of FileMaker:
I am setting up the Backup Schedule in FileMaker Server 14.
I am at step 4
fyi; at Step 3 Backup Options: I set path to a different internal Drive and Max number to keep at 7
Step 4: 'Frequency': =Daily, 'Start Date': =Today's date
this is where I am confused
"Repeat Settings"; Select how often during the day you want the schedule to run."
The options under this are very confusing (to me)
- 'Start Time" there are 3 drop downs. ?so is that Hours, Min, and PM/AM?
and then below that is a place to select "Repeat the task" which then makes more options available.
Please clarify what these all do.
- "Every" X minutes/Hours
- Cont Until; ? H, M, am/pm
I don't know, is it going to Repeat (ie make another Backup), if so how does that tie in with me picking # to keep..
How should I utilize this feature to have timely backups that minimize loss in case of total drive failure??
