Hello Erik,
thank you for your KB-Post.

The automatic backup usually happens around 03:08AM and this cannot be changed. However, it is possible to trigger a new backup/snapshot at any time from within Setup > System Administration > Administrative Tools: Create Configuration Snapshot.

You can also automate this process as described here, but the default daily backup should be sufficient:
