Windows Task Manager

In PME 7.2 and greater, scheduled tasks have been removed from the ION Database Manager and are now handled by the Windows Task Scheduler which invokes Windows Powershell files to run the backup. The power shell file itself will need to be modified in order to change the number of backups.

Navigate to the following directory C:\Program Files (x86)\Schneider Electric\Power Monitoring Expert\config\cfg\DbScheduledTasks (may vary depending on the installation directory) and open the file "Backup.ps1" either with Windows PowerShell or Notepad and edit the code as shown below.
Original Code:

Modified Code:

Save the file to retain the changes.
