In todays’ post we are going to explain the difference between ad-hoc backups and scheduled backups. Actually, there are three different types: scheduled backup, the ad-hoc backup, and the ad-hoc standalone full backup, all of them have different characteristics so let’s take a closer look.

Scheduled backup

A scheduled backup is performed automatically according to the job schedule you specified in configure backup wizard: it can consist of a periodic schedule and / or triggers. The first job run will create a full backup, all the following ones are incremental.

We like to call it “set it and forget it” option. Restore points will be removed according to the chosen retention and as long as backup destination is up and running the backup will be performed.

Important to understand is that Veeam Endpoint Backup’s retry logic. If the scheduled backup job fails for whatever reason, it will be restarted every 10 minutes within the next 23 hours. After that – the backup job eventually fails with an error.
