+ Now, navigate to: Maintenance -> Schedule Backup.

+ Select Whole Database under Customized Backup and click Schedule Customized Backup. In the screen that follows, accept the defaults though you may like to tinker with some of the settings i.e. to delete obsolete backups etc under Advanced as per your requirement. click Next.
