Can I change my automatic backup frequency?

I’m seeing a lot of questions on concerns on inconsistency’s of droplet backups in your community. I’ve had a few but for the most part they’ve been pretty consistent every Saturday night. There is the possibility though that I’ll want nightly backups in the future, how can I set this up?

This question was answered by @ryanpq:

Currently the backup service is weekly and this is not adjustable. Previously there were issues with scheduling consistency but these have been resolved so you should see your backups run regularly on a weekly basis.
