Running different tiers concurrently #200
If several backups are scheduled while my computer is turned off, they will all be run concurrently when the computer wakes up. In my case, every morning my hourly and daily backups are triggered the moment my computer wakes up.
I could use a lock file to prevent concurrent execution, but then my daily backup might not trigger. So instead, I have disabled the lock file. So far, this seemed not to have caused any issues.
Is it a problem to run different backup tiers concurrently? Am I risking my data?
The worst case is probably a temporarily missing
To keep everything “in order” (as far as this is useful if not every hourly is run anyway), you may consider doing 23 times a day (if you would normally do 24)
