I want to set up 3 different full backups, timed for:

1. Monday, Wednesday & Friday, overwriting each time to location folder 1

2. Tuesday, Thursday & Saturday, overwriting each time to location folder 2

3. Sunday, overwriting once a week to location 3
I thought I had that set up, but I'm getting errors. I need BASIC instructions, if someone wouldn't mind helping me.
Please.

Hi,
As I understand, you already created the backup jobs.

To schedule a backup job, please follow these steps:

1. Open "Backup Properties->Scheduler".

2. Press "Add" button.

3. Press "Set password" and type your Windows login password.

4. Press OK. A new window will open

5. In the "Schedule task" select Weekly and check the days you want the scheduler to run.

6. Press OK and press Save.

Thank you for your response. At this point, I'm not sure if I've deleted something that should always be there: I deleted all backup jobs, so ZERO backup jobs remain. Even so, last night, apparently "Daily Backup" job attempted to run, b/c I got the error message, "Parameter 'Daily Backup' is not a valid backup job or group". Does this give you some insight as to what else should be done to correct this?

Hi,
Please go to Start menu->Control Panel->Administrative tools->Task Scheduler and delete the task for that job.
