Scheduling backups with Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE
Scheduling is an important part of your backup strategy. Whether you run your backup at noon or in the middle of the night can be an important decision for you. When is your computer running and available for backup? Do you want to run it after a long day of work or before the day starts? Do you want to run it whenever you attach your backup storage or connected to the network? And how many time need to be minimum between different backups? Those of you that work with servers know that it isn’t always easy to find the right timing to perform your backups and with endpoints such as laptops and desktops it even gets more difficult.
Luckily Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE foresees in very flexible schedule options. Let’s have a look at them in depth.
The first option you can choose from is a daily backup. For example, every day at 02.00 am in the morning when you are (normally) sleeping. While this is a great possibility because you can perform your backups when you are not working, your computer won’t be always available at that time. Energy-saving is important these days so you don’t want to let your computer run at night for a backup alone. Veeam Endpoint Backup FREE foresees in some great functionality that allows you to wake up your computer for a backup and hibernate or shutdown afterwards. Please NOTE that the wake-up functionality does not work when you are using the connected standby power model, which is mainly used for tablets.
