Reply to:   RE: Scheduling Problem
It is is possible, but I would not do it: very long scripts.
You will have to create two scripts: one for set A and one for set B.
For set A:
Recycling backup every 8 weeks, starting Monday, February 7th.
Normal backup every 8weeks, starting Tuesday, February 8th.
Normal backup every 8 weeks, starting Wednesday, February 9th.
Normal backup every 8 weeks, starting Thursday, February 10th.
and so on until
Normal backup every 8 weeks, starting Sunday, March 5th.
For set B you have to make similar schedule, which will start with recycling backup on 
March 5th and then have normal backup every day through 4/2. 
I, personally, prefer three weeks rotation backup. I have to make three scripts, which 
are much shorter.
Also, if your employee don't work on the weekend, there is no reason to run backup 
during the weekend (normal backup will add only changed information anyway).
Hope, this may help.
