After making changes to the backup schedule a decision is made to initiate the "Run Backup Now" option. Changes are not saved, so after the backup runs those changes are not available the next time a user checks the backup settings. The backup operator is not prompted with a warning message detailing the need for the backup changes to be saved, and the backup job is allwed to proceed.
