To Add a new backup plan, you first of all need to be logged in to the Backup Control panel.
From the home page you need to select the machine you would like to make a backup of.
Once checked you will need to click Add backup plan.
You will then have the following box appear on the upper left of your screen. Firstly you are able to select what it is you wish to backup, for eg your entire machine, or maybe just a certain folder.
You then have full flexibility in which to assign a schedule for the backup. There is nothing stopping you having more than one backup plan for a device if the options dont give you as much flexibility as you may need.
Finally when you click Apply you will be asked to give the backup a suitable name. Now you can leave the service running and have the piece of mind your files are being backed up in accordance to rules you have stated.
