Set day for full backup on incremental backup.
Requesting the ability to set a day of a week, or day of the month that the full backup will be ran if using incremental backup.
reason for request:
for our setup, we have 15 plesk servers running all of one SAN. we find that on the day of the week the full backup is running, the IO / load on the SAN is much higher. it would be nice to be able to space out those servers by selecting days the full backups are preformed.
Thank you for your input! We will consider this functionality in upcoming releases if it will be popular.
Everyone, please continue voting for this feature if you consider it important.
We also would like to do incremental backups but also be able to specify the day of the week and the hour when we want the full backup to be done. As you know, at present there's no way to specify when the full backup should be done if we keep the incremental backup option checked. The ability to do so would greatly help us too since the full backup is very resource heavy, and we would like to schedule it on saturday night to minimize client issues in the working hours.
Is there a way to view or set this manually?

For example, you cannot specify you want the full backup on Sunday.
