Sanity Check Suggestion for Backup and Restore > Scheduled Backups

If a backup is scheduled for a time-based destination, for example


Then the Create destination directory? box must also be ticked (unless the user intends to manually create the directories for every backup run, which I doubt anyone does).

Virtualmin will accept and create the scheduled backup to a time-based destination even if the box isn’t ticked, but the backup will fail; and unless the user has enabled email notification, they will never know.

It seems sensible to me for Virtualmin to check whether the Create destination directory? box is ticked whenever a time-based scheduled backup is specified by the user. There’s no point in creating an automated backup that will fail when it’s actually executed.

That is all. Carry on.
