Create shortcut Creating a shortcut on the desktop

Edit shortcut

Clicking this button will open a dialog for creating a shortcut on the computer desktop for the currently-loaded backup task. In this dialog, you can edit the name of the shortcut, specify the behavior of the status window and define an action to be performed after backup (see also). If this action should not be changed by the user during backup, you can inhibit this by deselecting the relevant option. In addition, you can specify that the Windows User Access Control will start the backup as an administrator (e.g. to use Volume Shadow Copies).

Possible subsequent actions

Error handling

If an action has been selected to be executed after a backup, this can be modified by clicking the Error handling button, such that this action will not be carried out if a backup error occurred. The dialog makes it possible to choose on which errors this shall happen.

Status window

You can select whether the progress window during backup shall be suppressed and how the status window after backup is to be displayed (see more).

Other options

Shortcut to start an automatic backup

Click the small upper right button to display a list of all configured automatic tasks. Select the task you want to be started by the Desktop shortcut. The setting for a subsequent action is made as described above. Notice that in this case this action cannot be changed later during the backup. If an alternating schedule was configured for this automatic backup, this will be performed respective to the current date.
Example: In this way it possible to realize a backup with alternating schedule with subsequent standby. The user just has to click the so created Desktop shortcut.

Using the shortcut

By double-clicking the desktop shortcut, created in this way, you can start a backup and optionally, for example, put the computer into hibernation afterwards.
To start several backups from a desktop shortcut, use the actions menu to configure.
