Make this the Default backup set

Specifies whether the selected backup set is the default or a user-defined backup. Selecting this option asserts this backup set as the default. The previously designated default backup set is automatically reallocated as a user-defined backup set. Clearing this option, is accomplished by opening the Backup Set Properties dialog box of some other backup set and clicking this option there, thereby designating that backup set as the default.

Job Options

Check Archive Bit During Backups

Specifies whether files are considered modified and therefore backed up based on either the state of the archive bit or the file modification time. In addition, the system resets the Archive bit of every file that it backs up. This option influences the way incremental and differential backups are conducted for all subclients within the backup set. It does not affect the behavior of full backups.
