Schedule one time directories backup possible?

Outside of daily backup of the node at 6PM. Over sea client would like us(US base) to backup certain directories at 2 a.m. Hate to wake up just for that. I can schedule it to run again but that will take long time.

Is it possible to set it up? I don't see anywhere on the reference guide under DEFINE or BACKUP.

If you only want it to run once and then be gone, use DEFINE CLIENTACTION (basically a 1 time schedule).
Action=incremental
object=/path/directory/ or object=X:\path\directory\

HELP DEFINE CLIENTACTION for syntax

Oh sorry, when you define a clientaction, it runs now. You will need to define a schedule: action=incremental object={your directory} starttime=hh:mm expiration={after the start date} so that it doesn't run again. And you will need to associate the node with that schedule.
