Where is the cron tab

After running xsibackup --install-cron
it completes but there is no xsibackup-cron . there is a /jobs dir now.
Has something changed? Are jobs not scheduled trough xsibackup-cron any longer, is there updated documentation i can reference?
Thanks

Thank you very much, that is exactly the Documentation I was looking for. Spent a good couple hours searching for that info, why is it hidden away.

Precisely the problem. There are multiple documents in the Resource and help section, with many docs about cron, not one of them reference this.

Re: Where is the cron tab

Random Thoughts kindly pointed you to that document up in this thread.
A Google search by "xsibackup 11 crontab" returns the same URL
