Your administrator configures the backup interval for the inSync clients based on the requirements of your organization.
If your administrator allows you to configure the backup interval for your inSync client, you can define the time interval between two consecutive backups that are triggered automatically from your laptop. For example, if you define the backup interval to be 4 hours, inSync triggers the backup from your laptop 4 hours after the completion of the previous backup. If the inSync client is not connected to inSync Server, the inSync client resumes backups at the next interval when the inSync client is connected to the inSync Server.
If your administrator does not allow you to configure the backup interval for your inSync client, then the backup interval that is configured by your administrator appears in read-only mode.
To update the backup interval
- Start the inSync client.
- On the navigation pane, click Preferences.
- Under the Backup tab, in the Schedule area, move the Backup interval slider to set the frequency of the scheduled backups. By default, the backup interval is set for 8 hours.
