Backup Start backup immediately

After clicking the start button on the control panel or in the dialog for editing a backup task, the selected backup task will be executed immediately. On the screen, a window will appear displaying the status of the running backup. At the top the destination directory to which the files are copied is displayed, below the current action and the file that is being processed. Th top bar shows the progress of the processing of a single file, the lower the total progress. Depending on the program setting, it will show the number or the volume of the copied files.
To cancel the backup, click the Cancel button. To pause the backup, click the Pause button (which will then become the Continue button). On clicking the Continue button, the backup will resume and the button will revert to its Pause state.
The Minimize button can be clicked to minimize all windows of the program. To restore the program windows, click the program icon in the taskbar notification area.

Status Status

When the backup is finished, the window will indicate how many files have been copied and how many errors (if any) occurred. The window can be closed either automatically (see Options on automatic backup) or manually by clicking the Done button. In the example below, 2 of 71 files were copied. This means that 69 files from the source directory had not been changed since last backup and so did not need to be backed up. Clicking the Log button will close the status window and then open the current log file.

Action after backup: When starting a backup manually or via the command line, you can arrange beforehand for a subsequent action to take place: Shutdown, Logoff, Standby or Hibernate. This is very useful when a backup will take a long time to complete and you cannot wait for it to end to switch off the computer.
When starting a backup via the command line, the subsequent action defined in the command line will be displayed and can be modified during backup if desired.
Should errors occur during the backup, a check box for repeating the backup will be displayed. Enabling this option will cause the backup to restart immediately on closing the status window.
Note: This option is not available with automatic backups.
