    Here's the relevant section in the Admin Guide (the zmschedulebackup command).

    You may also edit the zimbra user's crontab directly; there are three lines in there which control the timing/frequency of Full and Incremental backups, and purging of older backups:

    To see what you have, as the zimbra user run:

    Code:
    malbec:~ # su - zimbra
    zimbra@malbec:~> crontab -l | grep backup
    0 1 * * 6 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -f   -a all 
    0 1 * * 0-5 /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -i  
    0 0 * * * /opt/zimbra/bin/zmbackup -del 10d
    zimbra@malbec:~>
    To edit the above, you need to know a little about how to use the vi editor, and then just run (again as the zimbra user):

    crontab -e


    Scroll down to the backup section and using vi commands, edit the crontab file directly.

    Hope that helps,
    Mark

    I would recommend using zmschedulebackup instead... but the end result is the same
