Schedule differential backup will execute on schedule time but if manual backup is running then differential backup will wait to finish full backup and then only differential backup will complete. So please make sure to use COPY_ONLY option in manual backup otherwise your backup chain will be broken.

As per the documentation: "Backup and restores are not allowed on TempDB". This is because it is just meant for temporary storage (backups and temporary don't go together). So if you need to back it up you are doing something wrong. In other words, Microsoft is trying to prevent mistakes. Please check the document for other restriction- http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms190768.aspx

If the manual backup take 1 hr to complete, will the schedule differential backup run after complete manual backup ?
