Backup Scheduling: How to Provide Full Backup Tasks Automation

Backup Schedule

Backup scheduling is one of the most important features in data backup software. It eliminates a need for running manual backups (with all filtering, compressing, transferring and other actions).

It is not a secret that most people do not back up their data, because it takes a lot of time and efforts. Do you want to run unattended backups and always be sure that you can perform data restoration or hard disk recovery in case of a disaster? Then backup scheduling with Handy Backup is for you!

Scheduling Backups of Your Computer Data

Our utility is an automatic Windows backup software that allows you to organize virtually any backup rotation scheme. It allows implementing to backup schedule best practices and strategies, completing a scheduler with several useful options such as:

  • Automation of all tasks. By scheduling backup tasks, you can automate all backups and make them run without a need for user interference.
  • Flexible schedule configuration. For each type of data, you can specify their own backup schedules and perform tasks on a regular base, from a minute to months in intervals. For example, you may want to backup databases two times a day and make photo archives two times per week, as shown below.

Flexible Backup Scheduling from Minute to Months

  • E-mail notifications. Once you have established a backup schedule, you have no need to worry about manual checking and controlling results of all backup procedures, as you can get all task reports through e-mail notifications.
  • Run backups as Windows service. The utility can run as service under Windows 10, 8, 7, Vista and Windows Server 2016, 2012, 2008 operating systems, which allows launching tasks without loading a graphical interface, and even without user logon. Learn more about running backups as service.

Scheduling Backup to Online Storage

Scheduling Backup to Cloud Storage

Some storage options can restrict backup scheduling by additional requirements. It is especially true for online storage, as you must be sure in a network connection during a scheduled backup task. Even such routine option as schedule backup to NAS in local networks depends on a connection reliability.

For cloud backup tasks (e.g., if you schedule backup to OneDrive or Google Drive), an additional concern is technical availability of data exchanging interface (which a firewall or a maintenance job can temporarily deny). An option for running missed tasks helps overriding this problem!

Review About Scheduling Backup by Handy Backup

"I schedule backup to OneDrive with Handy Backup instead of a built-in sync tool, as I have many dynamic components on my Wordpress-driven website. It works well, and I always can be sure that my data will be saved to a cloud and recovered when I need"
