    Hi Power BI Admin Ciel,

    Thanks for reaching out to Microsoft Q&A.

    Yes, moving to the Standard tier for Azure Backup will indeed give you more flexibility in scheduling your backups, including the ability to perform daily backups. In the Basic tier, backups are typically scheduled weekly, and you have limited options for customization. However, upgrading to the Standard tier unlocks additional features and configurations, including the ability to schedule backups daily. Once you’re on the Standard Tier, you can create an enhanced backup policy that meets your daily backup needs.

    • Here’s how to create an enhanced policy for Azure Virtual Machines (VMs): In the Azure portal, select your Recovery Services vault where your VM backups are configured. Under Backup, choose Backup Policies. Click +Add to create a new policy. Select Azure Virtual Machine as the policy type. Choose the Enhanced sub-type. Set the Backup schedule to Hourly/Daily/Weekly as per your preference. Save the policy.

    Using the enhanced policy, you can select the desired frequency for backups. If you want daily backups, choose the Daily option. You can also adjust the start time, duration, and other settings based on your specific requirements.
