View Full Version : Multiple clones in a single scheduled item

10-13-2009, 11:32 AM
Is there a way built in to SD where I can have multiple backup routines kick off from the same scheduled item? The only way I can find that might do this would be to have the first backup kick off a script at the end that runs an applescript that tells SD to do the next backup.

Not that its a big deal, I just want to make sure that I'm not missing something that's already built in.

Also, is there a way to increase the countdown time on the scheduled backups? I'd like to be able to keep my backup drive unmounted and then use the scheduled backup notice as my kick to turn on my backup drive but with all things considered its not always possible to get the drive mounted in time. Is this possible?

Just schedule the backups for the same time, Shawn. They'll run back to back.

There isn't any way to reduce the countdown, no, but you can unmount the drive (which will usually spin down) and then we'll automatically mount it, copy to it and unmount it when we're done.

Sounds good!

Thanks a bunch.
