    I want to keep 2 fridays of weekly backups.

    This friday, if i create a Weekly Friday backup set to 2 weeks and backup with a unique .tib, will that start in 2 weeks?

    If so do I then have to create another job the following Friday and give it another .tib name.

    My logic being that Backup A will run weeks 1 and 3 and Backup 2 will run 2 and 4.

    Each second set will overwrite the first and give me the 2 weeks I want.

    Is that going to work?

    Thanks

    Yes, that will work. Well done for working out that you have to wait a week before setting up the second set of backups.:cool:

    Thanks,

    It seems a bit odd though. I would have liked to see a calendar in the scheduling options.

    Never mind though, this product seems to do what I want

    Hello candle_66,

    Thank you for choosing Acronis Disk Backup Software.

    Please be aware that we have already received similar requests from other Acronis customers and they have already been forwarded to our Development Team. Acronis True Image embedded scheduler functionality will most likely be improved in the future builds\versions of a particular product, but exact time frame for this is not decided yet.

    If you want us to change the behaviour of Acronis True Image in any way or add some new features to this product, please feel free to post any of your suggestions in Acronis True Image WISH-LIST thread.

    Thank you.
