How to fully automate two different incremental backup jobs?

By kevingjonathan ·

On my Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 64-bit, i have 3 HDD. One for the OS (C:) and all my data (D:), and two for backup destinations (E:) and (F:). I a:m currently using Iperius Backup freeware for my backup jobs.

I'm using incremental backup and right now, i have 2 backup jobs. Job #1 runs during the first week (destination (E:)) and Job #2 runs during the second week (destination (F:)). Then Job #1 runs again during the third week replacing the first week's backup, and Job #2 runs during the fourth week replacing the second week's backup, and so on. This is how it looks:
-First week (destination (E:)): Full backup runs at Saturday 19:00, and the rest 5 incremental backups runs at Monday-Friday 19:00 each
-Second week (destination (F:)): Full backup runs at Saturday 19:00, and the rest 5 incremental backups runs at Monday-Friday 19:00 each
-Third week, replaces first week's backup (destination (E:)): Full backup runs at Saturday 19:00, and the rest 5 incremental backups runs at Monday-Friday 19:00 each
-Fourth week, replaces second week's backup (destination (F:)): Full backup runs at Saturday 19:00, and the rest 5 incremental backups runs at Monday-Friday 19:00 each
-...and so on.

With my current plan, i have to control the backup every week. Which means i have to disable the scheduling of the first week's backup when second week's Saturday comes, and enable the scheduling for the second week's backup. And when third week's Saturday comes, i have to disable the scheduling of the second week's backup and enable third week's scheduling, and so on.

Is there a way to fully automate my current system? Any help is appreciated.
