registry backup
« on: June 07, 2012, 09:50:20 AM »
Hello
I installed the registry backup and have two questions;
1-I left the default button 'run under current user account',as it is as I have the Windows UAC at default and the only restrictions we have are the pc sign on and our emails passwords. Wife and I are only usrs.
Is this correct to do?
2-I changed the days to seven before they are deleted but under settings, edit schedule, I am not sure if I should leave the default at 72.
I find the meaning confusing;is it functiobally reasonable to leave the hours at 72 or is it better to change this in view of my choice of backup days to 7?
Thank you for a great program.
Peter?

If you can see both your wifes and your account under the treeview int he program then current user will work fine.

I think you are getting confused on 2 different settings. In the program the delete old backups will be fine at 7 days.

The 72 thing you are seeing is a setting in the schedule. Which is totally different and is just a default setting to kill a task if it is running for that long. You can just ignore that :-)

I use the built in Windows task scheduler to give users complete control over the schedule. It is separate from my program and is a totally different beast  :wink:

I think we are both invluded as the name of the pc is us/lap and it is in the tree.
I accepted almost all the defaults except # of days so thank you.
This really runs fast and I am studying the informtion for disaster restore which we all should know.
