    Periodically – Specify the length of time between starting each full backup in either minutes or hours.

    • Start Every – The amount of time, minutes or hours, between each full backup.
      If a given backup extends past the scheduled time for the next automatic backup, the next automatic backup will commence immediately upon completion of the prior backup.

    • Stop Time – The time to stop the backup, whether it has completed or not, or to stop on completion.
