There is a config file setting backupIntervalMinutes which can be set.
Question: Do you have examples of how the Backup Destination Folder rules are applied?
Yes. First, here's a table format view of the rules in case it is helpful.
|No matching subfolder exists||Create a new subfolder with the same name as the source folder and use it as the backup destination.|
|Matching subfolder exists and is empty||Use this empty subfolder as the backup destination.|
|Matching subfolder exists and is not empty||Use this empty subfolder as the backup destination. A warning message is displayed indicating that the destination folder is not empty.|
|Folder is empty||Use this empty folder as the backup destination.|
|Folder is not empty||Use this empty folder as the backup destination. A warning message is displayed indicating that the destination folder is not empty.|
Here are some examples to illustrate the application of the rules. In our examples, the source folder is something like C:\Users\jen\Projects, so the name of the source folder is Projects.
You select a destination folder Google Drive/Backups/Projects (the destination folder name matches the source folder name). This destination folder Google Drive/Backups/Projects/ will be used directly.
You select /Google Drive/Backups/ as your destination (where Backups does not match the source folder name Projects). We check to see if /Google Drive/Backups/ has a Projects subfolder in it. If it doesn't, then backup will create a new Projects subfolder. The new Google Drive/Backups/Projects will be used to hold your backup files.
You select a destination folder /Google Drive/Backups/ that already has a Projects subfolder in it. This existing /Google Drive/Backups/Projects folder will be used.
If /Google Drive/Backups/Projects is not empty, an warning dialog will appear when you click on "Create Backup" on the confirmation window in Step 4.
