In what priority are backup sets run?

Question: I have several backups going now. I noticed that I had a manual backup (big files) coming in then a auto scheduled backup started and jumped in front and started transferring. The auto backup almost completed before another file came through for the manual backup. Are there priorities for auto backups?

Answer: Auto or manual are the same to the server, if one starts first, but has more or larger files, it will spend more time preparting before transferring starts.

Endpoint software sends backups first-in-first-out, only one at a time. If you have more than one backup set scheduled for the same time, or if they overlap, subsequent backups will wait until the first ones complete.
