I would like to run a mirror backup every hour, permanently. However, when I go into Scheduler > Advanced > Repeat Task - I can select for it to run every hour, but the "Until" option seems to be mandatory, meaning I have to input an end time.
I don't seem to be able to unselect the "Until" option completely, which would enable my mirror backup to run once every hour, permanently.
Can the "Until" option be unchecked completely? Or is there another way to schedule an hourly mirror backup?

The backup is scheduled to run every day with the repeat every hour option.
In this case, you should put the scheduler start time at let's say 07:00 AM

After that the repeat task every hour should be until duration 23 hours and 30 minutes.
This way the backup task will run every hour for 23 hours and 30 minutes.

After that the scheduler for the next day will start the backup and it will run again for 23 hours and 30 minutes. This will be repeated every day.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
