Run this task

In the "Run this task" section, you can specify when the scheduled backup should be performed. After clicking on the desired option, you can then freely determine the schedule in the appropriate tab. The corresponding tab is then to the right of the "Run this task" section.

Specifies that the task should performed at a specific event. You can chose between "System startup" or "User logon".


When choosing "System startup", the task will be performed every time you turn on your computer and after Microsoft Windows has fully loaded. Please note that this option is only available if you use a password for scheduling a task and cannot be selected when enabling the option "Schedule without password".


When choosing "User logon", the task will be performed every time when you logon into your Microsoft Windows account. A logon deemed effective after you have entered your password for your Microsoft Windows account. If you do not use a password and/or if you have select the option "Schedule without password", a logon deemed effective when you can see your Windows Desktop. This is also applicable if you have set a password for your Microsoft Windows account but if you use the automatic logon feature.


The point of time can be selected at "Start" and defines when the task should be performed the very first time. You don't need to change the given point of time if the schedule should take into effect immediately. If the schedule should take into effect at a later time, you can manually select the point of time.


Periodically

Specifies that the task should performed periodically at certain intervals, e.g. every 10 minutes or every 3 hours. For example, if you select 3 hours, the backup will be performed every 3 hours.


Daily

Specifies that the task should performed daily. You can specify if the task should actually being performed every day or, for example every 2 days. In addition and if necessary, you can also specify a periodic schedule that repeatedly performs the task at the given interval.


The point of time can be selected at "Start" and defines when the task should be performed the very first time. You don't need to change the given point of time if the schedule should take into effect immediately.

Weekly

The point of time can be selected at "Start" and defines when the task should be performed the very first time. You don't need to change the given point of time if the schedule should take into effect immediately.

Run with credentials

Specifies the Windows User Account to be used for executing scheduled archiving tasks. The user name of your current Windows User Account will automatically be displayed and you just have to enter your password of your Windows User Account in the password field.


Tasks can also be scheduled without a password which is perfect for those users that haven't set a password for their Windows User Account. To schedule a task without a password, just enable the option "Schedule without password".


This option can also be used if you have set a password for your user account but in this case, you have to be logged in into your user account otherwise, schedule won't work.


Run the task only when the computer is idle

Specifies that the task is only performed if the computer is not used at the given point in time.


If missed, run the task at startup

Specifies that the task is performed at the next system startup if the task couldn't be performed at the scheduled point of time. This might happen if your computer was for example turned off at the given point in time.


Click "OK" to confirm your selections and to enable the schedule.
