'Backup with Scheme' Does a full?

I have a daily incremental backup scheduled for a partition.  Some times it fails, like the target drive isn't there at the scheduled time. When I an hour later try to manually kick it off by 'Backup with Scheme', it wants to do a full rather than the next incremental.  How can I just re-do whatever was supposed to happen that day?


  • @JeeperDon, When you enable the backup scheme, it will perform backup based on the scheme rule, whether it is schedule backup or manually run.
    What backup scheme did you set?

    The scheme and schedule are attached. It's incremental with a 2 week loop.  A 'full' followed by 13 incremental runs.  At the time of the missed job on Sept 29, there were only two small incremental files past the last full.  When I kicked it off manually an hour later on the 29th, it got to up to 6GB and was at a low percentage done.  I canceled the job and waited for today the 30th.  Today the 30th, after skipping yesterday due to failure, it is doing a new Full at the scheduled time.

    It's looking that each failure in the scheme results in a fresh start of a new loop through the scheme.  Is that true?  I don't understand why it can't just pickup on the current point in the original scheme loop.

  • @JeeperDon, We don't see the backup created on 30th. Could you re-send the screenshot of the backup list?
