Two questions about backups on ESM?

First question has to do with creating multiple backup schedules or a single schedule with multiple destinations.

    I have a customer which would like to keep a copy of their backups both on the box and on a network share.  The backups in question are just for the configurations, they don't want the data backed up for now.  Outside of using a third party application to move the files, is there a means of performing this function natively?

The second question has to do with having the option in the backup config to overwrite the previous backup file.

   This customer has had a history of having to rebuild ESM machines frequently so they only want to backup their configurations, not the data.  In order to conserve space they don't want to keep a history of backup file.  Their preference would be to overwrite the previous backup.  Is there a means within ESM to accomplish this?

Thanks in advance

HI Mike,

Honestly i'm not sure whether there is such functionality for both of your questions.

The best will be if you can submit a PER request:
