Multiple backup sets on server

Hi

 

I am evaluating the MozyPro for Linux server backup. As I understand it I can create a cron job to schedule regular backups. What I can't see is if there is a way to create multiple schedules for the backup? I.e. one backup every 5 minutes, one daily, one weekly and one monthly?

Re: Multiple backup sets on server

Hi @mik,

 

You should be able to create as many cron jobs as you'd like, such as hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, etc. Then each cron job would be run on Mozy every xxxx (depending on how you have them set up.)

 

For more information, see: Scheduling backups with Mozy Linux

Re: Multiple backup sets on server

Hi again,

 

I don't understand how each of the different backups will be separated?

 

Since I add the same directory to the mozybackup and each scheduled backup runs daily, weekly etc. won't all backups be stored in the same "location" on your end? I.e. the weekly backup will be overwritten by the daily backup next day?

 

I can't find a way to get the backup utility to handle each of the scheduled backups as a separate backup. The util runs the same command on the same set of data only at different times.

Re: Multiple backup sets on server

How long the data in the backup lasts depends on the retention policy for your account. Basically we collect only the differences in files, and the old file versions are saved for how-ever long the retention ends up being, so that you can go back and retrieve old versions of a file if needed. This article gives a list of retention options:

I hope this helps!
