Is it possible to create server backups more than once a day?
Plesk Backup Manager does not allow to create backups more than once a day due to consuming much server resources. The steps bellow are performed on your own risk:
Go to: Tools & Settings > Scheduled tasks > Add Task
Add the command
Set the time, when backup creation should be started
Ensure that the task is active
Add the same task again, but change the time for the second task

IMPORTANT: Creation of a backup can take a lot of time depending on mail and website content volume. If the first backup is still running and it is already the time for the second backup task, the second one will not run. Due to this fact running server backup more than once a day may affect the server performance.
