I am on eastern time. The host is on central time. I am only one hour ahead of the host. The Backup Scheduler is set for  which I understand to be 3am. However, yesterday it kicked off at 4pm (my time) when I was tweaking environmental settings (colors, borders, etc., using Weaver II Pro). I lost ALL of my settings, even those I had not touched.
(1) Is the backup time = host time, or UTC, or ?
Or is that parameter not working correctly?
(2) How to protect active work if backup kicks in.
