I have a quick question about coypjob intervals. If I have my copyjob set to 1 day starting at 4am, does that mean that the copy starts at 4am and runs until 4am the next day and then just starts over? I am seeing some warnings about things not being copied over in the copy interval. I’m a little confused on how this works. How can I make the copy interval longer?

But, you could have an issue copying the full chain of the source backup job you’re referencing. For example, if the source backup job chain you’re copying from is a week long, you would need to expand your interval to 7 or 8 days, or otherwise your interval setting would be out of scope. After your source full chain has been copied, you can set the interval to a lesser period...for example, 1 day. And this is assuming your source backup job runs at least daily. This would ensure you get the most current data from your source job. Let me know if you have further questions...and yes, it is indeed a bit confusing. I’m actually doing a series of posts here on the Community Hub regarding Copy Jobs :)
