Scheduling windows of time for backing up and bandwidth control


This is, somewhat related to my other request, here: Windows KopiaUI, how do I schedule backup frequency? - #7 by jaxjexjox
Not only would I like to be able to schedule, how often a backup / snapshot is taken (link above)

I would also like the ability to either limit the upload speed in KB/s and or set time windows it’s safe to run the backup at all.
I’m in Australia and I’m on a very fast link, for an Aussie. I used to be on a link with only 1Mbit upload (unlimited quantity)

If I need to upload, for example one particular backup of 35GB every Tuesday evening, it would be nice if I could pause that upload, if it’s not completed by Wednesday morning or in the least set a time window that uploads are slower. (Only 2mbit of uploads, during business hours, for example)

Does this make sense?
Thanks so much for the hard work.

Alternatively, in the short term, an easier solution might be simply backup limiting per job.

I know, most of my jobs will take an hour or two at most, but this one particular job I expect to take at least 3 or 4 days to do at a pace which wouldn’t cause disruption.
