Special Items in a Backup
Once you have defined a backup set, you can specify the following tasks:
- When your Backup Session Completes...
You may choose to send an email, close the Backup for Workgroups
progress screen automatically, turn off your computer, or write results
to the Windows Event Log.
- Open File Support Fallback.
Backup for Workgroups interacts with a component in Windows called
Volume Shadow Services (VSS) in order to access files that are in use at the
time of the backup. This Windows component can, at times, fail to
operate. When Windows is in a situation where VSS cannot be utilized,
you can specify and alternate route that the backup process can take.
The options that you have to fallback on are:
- When you select this option, the Backup Client shutdown Outlook and
shutdown services in order to reduce the number of files that are locked
and in use.
Select Services - When you select this option, you can select
services that will be stopped before the backup begins and these
services will be restarted, in reverse order, after the completion of
the backup process.
- Run an Application.
Press the Specify Applications button if you would like Backup for
Workgroups to run an application before or after each backup.
