Multiples schedules


#1

Hi everbody,
I am starting using Duplicati and I am trying to schedule a diary and monthly backup.
Is possible to avoid diary sched to run when is the monthly backup day?

Hi,
I’m not sure whether this suits your situation, but from what I imagine and considering you’re to backup the same set. You should only do daily backup and use the retention policy (–retention-policy) to keep only backups you’re interested in.
If these were different set or destinations and a workload/timing issue, then I would use schedule the monthly backup a few minutes before the daily one, and use the external scripts (run-script-before-required) so that the next daily backup will be inhibited.
I hope it helps
Cheers.

This is the best way to go.
