How can I change the Backup Profile used when you click on the "Backup up to date" icon on the Joomla Home Dashboard?

When I click on that, it starts a backup using Profile #1. I would like to use another profile as default (eg. Profile 2, which has no images, etc.).

How can I change which profile is used by default when clicking that button?



I mean this:

This icon is a plugin:

Go to your site's backend, System, Manage, Plugins, look for “Quick Icon - Akeeba Backup Notification”. Click to edit.

As you can see, you can select the backup profile and other options controlling how this icon works.
