Automatic configuration backup

hi, I would like to know if there is a way for my fortigate 800c to backup the config automatically every time I apply changes or maybe every period of time? 
Thank you, 
Raz.

Yes, there is a way. 
 
Have a look at the kb article below:

Hi there!
I posted it: https://forum.fortinet.com/tm.aspx?m=147363
 
1) Create a user with read only privilege in the Fortigate. ie: user backup, password: 1234
2) In a File Share (ie: D:\backup\), put PSCP.EXE  and create a BAT file with this:
set DESTINATION=D:\backup
set FECHA=%date:~6,4%%date:~3,2%%date:~0,2%
set LOG=D:\backup\backup.log
echo Y|pscp -P 22 -pw 1234 backup@192.168.0.1:sys_config %DESTINATION%FORTIGATE%FECHA%.conf >> %LOG%
 
192.168.0.1 is the IP of your Fortigate.
In the BAT file the user and password is stored in clear text, so that's why is necessary a read only user, but if you don't mind, you can use the admin user.
 
3) Create a schedule task in windows to execute the bat.
 
In addition:
Just check the SCP is enabled in your Fortigate:
config system global
set admin-scp enable
end
and of course, you have to download pscp:

Hope it helps!
