|FileBack PC is asking me if I want to backup an open file when a backup job is run|
FileBack PC version 4 automatically defaults to a
setting whereby it asks how to handle open files that it
encounters. If you are at your computer when a backup is
running and an open file is encountered, this gives you a chance to
close the application that has locked the file so it can be backed
If you are not at your computer, or otherwise do
not respond, it will skip the file and move on to the next. If
you happen to be at your computer, you can tell FileBack PC to try
backing up the file again by clicking the "Retry" button.
Selecting "Exclude File" will prevent FileBack PC from ever
attempting that particular file again.
We realize that you may not want to be asked about every open
file that FileBack PC encounters, so this option can be changed:
- On the "Backup Jobs" page of the main FileBack PC window,
click on the backup job to modify.
- Click the drop-down arrow on the "Edit" button and select
"Edit using Advanced Editor"
- When the advanced job editor appears, click on "Behavior
Options" under "Categories" / "Advanced Settings"
- Underneath the long list of options, there is a section of
the window entitled "Backup of Open Files." Change the
"When encountering an open file" option to "Skip the open file"
or "Attempt to backup the file anyway."
- Click "OK" to save the job changes.
- Be sure to click the Save button on the toolbar or select
"File" / "Save Configuration" to make the change permanent.
