Important: if you make any changes to the Schedule in the Backup Manager then this server or workstation will then have its own policy for Backup & Recovery and stop inheriting the policy from the site or client at which it resides.

The Backup schedule refers to when the backup will run based on the local time of the computer the Agent is installed on.

The chedule options are not available for workstations or laptops using Backup & Recovery Documents.
