    Hi,
    I would like to schedule a differential backup job that runs M-F. In the help documentation it specifies that the user can specifying when the next full backup is performed (Create a new full backup after...). I'm not seeing where I can specify this value. Where is it located?
    Thanks for your help,
    Terry

    This applies to ATI10: When you created the scehduled task and you have specified a Backup Location (i.e., Managed Backup Location) as the destination, then when you specify the kind of backup as diff or inc, you can specify how many diffs/incs to do before ding another full backup. In your case, I think you want to tell it to do for incs/diffs, then the next time it backs up, it will do a new full backup.

    Thanks for the reply. I guess I'm confused. By the way the documentation reads there should be a text entry field in the UI that allows me to specify how many backups to do before a new full backp is performed. I'm not seeing where in the UI that I can specify this value.
    Thanks,
    Terry
