When doing a copy of a backup spec, a schedule is created, although this is not requested

Consequences for the user:
The fact that this is an active schedule is quite dangerous, just think about offline backups for databases.
The user might not be aware that a schedule has been created automatically and he will create a second schedule.

Options to enhance this:
a) Just do not create a new schedule when doing a copy, this should not be a large effort.
b) Let the user decide if the schedule should be copied, this may require a change when you do the right click to the spec. Maybe "Copy specification and schedule" or "Copy only specification" instead of "Copy As ..."
