Running/scheduling a backup as a standard user..


I wanted to try to setup an automatic running scheduled backup and had some questions.

I wanted to know if all files and permissions would be copied over properly if a backup job is created/run from a "standard user" account and not a "admin" account?

Questions: Would "all" user's (I have three users on this mac) files be copied over including "admin" users?

Would only the currently logged on "standard" user's files be copied and other users (admin, standard users) be ignored due to my limited rights?

Previously, I would do a smart update backup manually by logging all other users out and re-logging in as an "admin" user and running the backup job. This has worked fine (all users accounts copied regardless of kind, admin or standard). I would just like to be able to schedule this to run automatically in the middle of the night and not have to do this manually every time.

Thanks all for your help.
