    I am backing up four separate plans each night ideally between midnight and 6 AM. I suspect it will take a while to do the first full backups, after which I will start the scheduled incremental ones. The question is how to schedule these. Can I have them run concurrently (they will be backing up different shares to the same drive) or should I try to guess at how long each incremental will take and try to schedule them consecutively?

    , either way works.
    The easiest way is to back then all up with a single plan, in this case you can stop a plan after running for X hours not to interrupt your users.
    Thanks

    Unfortunately, I'm stuck with a separate plan for each network share (4 of them on my NAS.)

    If Plan A is backing up and continues to the point that Plan B is scheduled to start, will Plan B start and run concurrently with Plan A, or will Plan B wait for Plan A to finish? For that matter, what happens if Plan A is backing up (as I am doing now manually - the initial backup of almost a terabyte of information) and runs up to the point that the same plan (Plan A) is scheduled to start?

    You can chain the backups so the next plan runs when the previous one completes. See the Pre/Post Actions tab in the backup plan for details.
