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.

Can you tell me why i can't change the recovery model for tempdb ?

Nov 21, 2012 at 08:33 AM vSuresh31

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-
