Conditions add more flexibility to the scheduler, enabling to execute backup tasks with respect to certain conditions. Once a specified event occurs (see the “Scheduling” section for the list of available events), the scheduler checks the specified condition and executes the task if the condition is met.
The scheduler behavior in case the event occurs but the condition (or any of multiple conditions) is not met, is defined by the Task start conditions backup option. There, you can specify how important the conditions are for the backup strategy:
Conditions are available only when the custom backup scheme is used. You can set conditions for full, incremental and differential backup separately.
Adding multiple conditions
Multiple conditions must be met simultaneously to enable task execution.
It is required to run the backup task after free space on the managed machine is changed by at least 1 GB, but only if all users are logged off and more than 12 hours have passed since the last backup.
Set the schedule, conditions and the Task start conditions backup option as follows:
If the free space changes by more than 1 GB, the scheduler will wait until both conditions are met at the same time and then run the backup task.
