In my previous article you learned How to Create Backup in Windows Server 2012. In today's article you will learn about how to schedule a backup for a daily update in Windows Server 2012.
In one of my previous articles I already told you about Installing Windows Server Backup Feature that is a necessary feature and the first step for creating a backup.
After installing the Windows Server Backup Feature go to the "Tools Menu of the Server Manager", click on it and scroll down to the "Windows Server Backup."
Now the Local Backup Window will be opened. Then on the right hand side you will find an option for "Backup Schedule". Click on this option to create a Schedule for Backup.
Now a "Getting Started" page will be opened where some information about the Backup Schedule will be given. Click on Next button to continue.
Now on the next page you can select "Backup Configuration" that can be either "Full Server" or "Custom". If you select Full Server then a backup of the Full Server will be created and if you select the Custom feature then you will get an option to select the item for which you want to create a backup.
Here I have selected the "Custom" option. After that click on Next.
Now you must select the item for which you want to create a backup. For that first click on "Add Items".
As you select the Add Items a new window will be opened from which you can select the items. Here I have only selected the System State.
On clicking the "Ok" button you will see the selected option in the Wizard Window.
Now you had to specify the "Backup Time" for creating a backup either Once a Day or if you want to create the backup more then once then you can select the second option and specify the frequency of the backup.
On the next page you must select the "Destination Type" that can be a volume of the computer, Hard Disk or any remote folder in the shared network. Here I have selected the second option, which is to create a backup on the volume of the computer.
On the next page you need to select the Destination Volume on which you want to create the backup. For that first click on the "Add" button and then select the destination volume.
Now you will see your selection on the Wizard. After that click on Next.
Now a "Confirmation Page" will be opened that will show you the full configuration of the selection you made.
On clicking the "Finish" button a "Summary Page" will be opened that will show the status of your backup.
