Schedule Time

 

EaseUS Todo Backup provides five Schedule Types.

 

 
One-time 
Set a specific time point to execute the backup once.
 
Daily
Execute backup in date period - Set start date and expire date for the plan.
Execute backup every X day(s) at the specific time point.
Or execute backup every X day(s) and every X hour(s)/minutes(s) from start time to expire time.   
Suppose start time is at 6:00 am and finish time at 10:00 am with 2-hour interval time. Backups will be executed for three time at different time points, 6:00 am, 8:00 am and 10:00 am.
 
Weekly
Execute backup in date period - Set start date and expire date for the plan.
Execute backup every X week(s) on the specific day(s) at the specific time point.
Or execute backup every X week(s) on the specific day(s) and every X hour(s)/minutes(s) from start time to expire time. 
 
Monthly
The backup is to be automatically executed in the specific month(s) at the scheduled time, which may be based on date or week. You can also specific every X hour(s)/minutes(s) from start time to expire time on specific day(s) in specific month(s). 
 
Upon event
The backup is to be automatically executed in the event of:
System startup - Backup runs automatically when system starts up.
System shutdown - Backup runs automatically when system is shutdown.
User log on - Backup runs automatically when Windows logs in.
User log off - Backup runs automatically when Windows logs off.
USB device plugged in - Backup runs automatically when USB device is plugged in provided that it is set to be the destination.
 
User Account
 
EaseUS Todo backup uses administrator account permission to run schedule backup, the default account is the system account on this computer. If the account doesn’t have admin permission to run schedule, you need to add a local administrator account and password.
 
 
To locate an Admin account on the computer, you can use “Whoami” command:
 
 
Load from template/Save as template
 
To save the created schedule as template, or load a saved template
 
Note:

1. Each rule in schedule backup can be modified or removed.

2. With different priority level (full-high, differential-normal, incremental-low), there will be no any conflict when different rules are set to run at a same minute.

3. Backups with different priority will be executed from high to low in sequence. And for those even have same priority, our product will perform only one of them to avoid duplication.

 
Advanced Settings
