Use Time Backup Wizard to set your own backup schedule in Time Backup. You can choose for the system to backup in an hourly interval, or customize your own so that you will never have to manually do the backup.

Time Backup allows users to backup data to another DiskStation in a remote location. With snapshot and multiple versioning still intact, remote backup assures the data and its historical changes are intact when the main server experiences unexpected downtime.
