Question about "Cleanup time window"


Please, explain, why “Cleanup time window” specified as interval (for time, not for day)?

Afret all, cleaning is performed in concrete time.
For example, in my case:
Cleanup time window - 1-7/6-7
Cleanup performed beginning in 6:08 - 6:10

It s the daily urbackup internal maintenance.
Basically it set up for when you dont do backup (better set a client setting for backup window as well)
I backup clients like 6-22 and the maintenance window is like 0-4


Thanks for your answer.
But, i still do not understand why cleanup as time period, and not as concrete time?
In your settings, backup performs from 6 to 22 hours every time, specified in parameter “Interval for incremental file/img backups”. But, cleanup performs from 0 to 4 hours only once (i think - 0:10).

I think because the cleanup can take much longer if you have more clients.
I didn’t looked very deep into this. But maybe there’s not the same amount to do everyday and sometime it can resume another day. But in between you still wants backups to happen.



Found this useful aswell

1-7/0-24 : Allow backups on every day of the week on every hour.
Mon-Sun/0-24 : An equivalent notation of the above
Mon-Fri/8:00-9:00, 19:30-20:30;Sat,Sun/0-24 : On weekdays backup between 8 and 9 and between 19:30 and 20:30. On Saturday and Sunday the whole time.
