S3 backups

Good morning,

I've just tested using Perch built in backups for a customer on staging at the moment (we usually use a third party service). All working great but I notice the task isn't backing up resources (just the database). I presume this is because there have been no changes to assets since I set it up (as it backs up on a rolling basis). Is there any way I can force an initial backup of the resources that are already in Perch?

Perch Runway: 3.0.12, PHP:, MySQL: mysqlnd 5.0.12-dev - 20150407 - $Id: b396954eeb2d1d9ed7902b8bae237b287f21ad9e $, with PDO

App runtimes: <?php $apps_list = [ 'perch_blog', 'root_analytics', 'perch_forms' ];
Image manipulation: GD Imagick
PHP limits: Max upload 100M, Max POST 100M, Memory: 512M, Total max file upload: 100M

It should back up 5 at a time until it's all done. Is your task scheduler running more frequently than your database is being backed up? If not, it needs to.

Thanks Drew - it's running hourly (backup set for 24 hours) and I can see it's backing up now - "Daily Backups backup up 10 assets." Should I increase the frequency just to get this initial run completed more quickly?

You could do that.
