Creating a backup schedule

The backup schedule is a fundamental part of the recovery plan. It determines how frequently you must perform backups, assigns responsibility for making backups, and serves as a record of when backups are performed.
Ideally, you should perform a full backup of the database every day. However, depending on availability requirements and your recovery plan, a less frequent full backup and frequent incremental backups might be sufficient.
Several considerations impact the backup schedule:
*Database integrity
*Database size
*Unscheduled backups
