A common pitfall with backup is that it might look like it’s doing it’s job perfectly year after year when the truth is it might have partly stopped working a long time ago due to some minute change or error somewhere. Which you’ll either find out when you regularly test restoring or when you desperately need to restore.
I would very much like to be able to schedule restores. Since nobody does a manual test restore daily it would be very nice to have a regular basic restore scheduled that might catch some errors. Obviously you are never 100% sure if everything is backed up as it should neither with manual or automatic test restores. But it would be very very nice to enable this base test daily. Yes I know it has its limitations scheduling this but it’s a huge improvement over doing manual tests every six months or so.
I could have a small external script checking file sizes and then erasing the files for tomorrows scheduled run. Utimately I’d like to have the automatic restore to restore from different parts of available backups but that is a completely different beast. Just having scheduling added would be very very very nice.
