Backups running every 5 minutes with -1 Bytes

I am not sure what setting is doing this but I only want one backup a day. I have set it to 24 hours with same results.

that is the log located in /var/log. I ran a repair and now it shows proper file sizes but it is still backing up ever 5 minutes. I only want every 24 hours

That looks correct. Can you click the “Show Details” button, next to “Backup Window”?

attached. How do I make them run at midnight? They are running during the day.

I had the same problem with backups running every 5 minutes or so on a client.
I got no responses here as to what cause might be.
I ended up deleting the client, running the “remove unknown” option, and then reinstalling it to resolve the problem.
Not a desirable solution, but it worked.

If you only want backups to run around midnight, change the backup windows.
Change from 1-7/0-24 to 1-7/0-1
That will have backups only run between midnight and 1:00am.
Assuming you get your current problem resolved…
