Hi All,

Is there any way to restrict scheduled backups to only run if local IP address is on a specific subnet? Just had somebody's backup kick off over a very slow WAN VPN connection, I would like to prevent that...

Thanks,

Ralph E.

You can always modify the code which actually runs the scheduled backup and insert whatever checks you want - then skip the call to Reflect if the conditions are not met. 

With Create Backups selected, click on the Scripts option in the right panel and you can select the script associated with the backup you want to modify.  You can then see and edit the script.  Note that scripts can be created using VBScript, Windows batch file or PowerShell languages.
