A daily backup is done @ 6.57 am each day. I would like it to backup at a different time. HOW?
thanks, Frank

You can alter that, although it's not possible in the UI.  Stickies backs up "every x hours" rather than "at this time".

If you'd like to adjust that, do this:

- Wait until just after the time you want Stickies to backup
- In Settings, alter the backup period to be "every 24 hours".
- Open the "backups" folder (in About, click the data "..." button, find "backups" in there")
- Close Stickies
- Rename the most recent backup file to be today's date, with the time you want, e.g. 202104021800 if you want 6pm, and were doing this today
- Run Stickies again.

The app will see that the most recent backup was "taken" at 1800 today, and schedule the subsequent ones for 24 hours from that time.
