It's a good way for your Windows 7 to backup multiple schedules, which makes the backup thing easy and well maintains your data safe.


Considering the backup data, backup time and data saving location, there are four situations to create multiple backup schedules in your Windows 7:

1. Backup same data to different locations at different time

You may want to create one backup job to backup your data partition and C drive (C drive is system partition by default and usually it is separated from data partition) to an external USB drive daily, and another job to backup the same data to network drive on different schedule like weekly or monthly.

2. Backup different data to different locations at different time

It is possible you’d like to do a nightly job to backup all your files on data partition to an external USB drive, and a weekly job to backup system ( C:\ ) drive to an hard drive.

3. Backup different data to same location at different time

It is unacceptable slow and unreliable when you backup large number of files with Windows7 Backup. For example, you want to back up in the region of 25,000 files, and if you attempt to do this in one job, it may take very very long time. Here, separating them into small ones so as to create multiple backup jobs at different time is a good choice, and multiple schedules is necessary to simplify later backup jobs.

4. Backup same data to same location at different time

There may be a need that you want to backup the data (system partition, for example) to one location but daily for increment backup and monthly for full backup.
