Schedule a backup on the 5th Tuesday

Post by GUMC-K »

I have two profiles with the following schedules
1) 1st, 3rd, and last Tuesday of each month
2) 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month

What I need is for the first profile to run on the 1st, 3rd, and 5th Tuesday. As it is now, SyncBack runs both profiles on the 4th Tuesday of each month. However, the 4th Tuesday is not always the last Tuesday. Occasionally there are months with 5 Tuesdays.

The profile runs properly if there is a 5th Tuesday, as it is also the last Tuesday of the month.

Is there a way to schedule for the 5th Tuesday (or any other day of the week) of the month?

Thanks!

Hi,

We do not have a scheduler in SyncBack. We rely on Windows Task Scheduler (WTS) to run tasks on the scheduled date/time. When you create a Schedule within a profile, we are only providing a drill-down into the Windows Task Scheduler interface through our program settings interface to facilitate SyncBack users in the creation and configuration of a Scheduled Tasks.

Therefore, the options you see in the profile’s > When > Edit Schedule settings page are same as the options available in the Task Scheduler. As there is no option in the Task Scheduler to trigger a task on 5th Tuesday (or any other day in that week), this option is not available in SyncBack.

Thank you

Well phooey. :(

Thank you for the reply, I appreciate it. At least I can stop looking for some setting that I'm missing.
