Automated Daily Backups
This is why we created Cloudback - to continuously backup a repository and its metadata on a daily basis. By default, Cloudback captures a backup daily at a defined hour according to a defined time zone and puts a resulting archive into defined storage. You can also create a custom schedule to run your backups on non-daily basis.
You can configure the exact hour you want to capture a backup every day, or define your own schedule. We recommend you to choose an hour when your repositories are not in use. For instance, it could be an early morning hour.
Here is how you can change the schedule for an individual repository:
Also, there is an option to change the schedule for all repositories in a GitHub account via the
Bulk Operations menu:
Number of scheduled repositories
The overall number of scheduled repositories depends on a purchased
GitHub Marketplace Plan and a purchased number of
units. The detailed information on the available number of
units can be found in the
Billing profile dialog in the
- Repositories section:
- Purchased: the overall number of purchased repositories
- In use: the number of scheduled repositories
- Remaining: the delta between the number of purchased and the number of scheduled
Please be aware that a backup schedule is sensitive to the account time zone you define at the initial setup. Additionally, you could verify and change the time zone in the
Account Settings menu:
You could configure for how long we store your backup before we wipe it completely. There are a few predefined options we consider sufficient for the majority of use-cases. The setting is available both in the card and in the Bulk Operation dialog.
