How to use the backup list

Backup list contains all the defined backups visible in the left side of Backup4all's main window. The backup jobs are grouped into backup groups, for easy handling.

  • 20 backup list

To configure a backup job's appearance (icon and label) in the backup list, you have to open the Backup Properties window, switch to the General tab, change the name of the backup job, choose the group of the backup job and select a backup job icon. If you have several backup jobs defined in the same group, you can check the option Sort backup jobs alphabetically in a group from Tools->Options->Preferences to have them ordered by name. When you backup an entire group, the backup jobs are backed up in the order that they are displayed in the group.

When right clicking a backup job, a menu is displayed giving the following options:
•    Make Backup - starts the backup process for the selected backup job
•    Make Full Backup - performs a full backup regardless of the backup type
•    Make Differential Backup - performs a differential backup regardless of the backup type
•    Make Incremental Backup - performs an incremental backup regardless of the backup type
•    Restore - opens the Restore Wizard window for the currently selected backup job
•    Restore Latest Version - starts the latest version restore process for the selected backup job
•    Restore Latest Version To - opens a window to select the folder were you want the backup to be restored

•    Clean - opens the Clean Backup window for the selected backup job
•    Cancel - aborts current backup process
•    Pause - pause the current backup/test/cleanup/restore process
•    Stop - stops the current backup/test/cleanup/restore process
•    Job Logs - lets you open and view the Last Backup Log, Last Restore Log, Last Test Log and Last Cleanup Log
•    Job History - opens the History window for the current backup job
•    Group History - opens the History window for the current backup group
•    Create Shortcut... creates a shortcut to the backup job
•    View as - lets you select one of the view types: Tree, Icons and List
•    Backup <Selected Group Name> Group - executes all backup jobs from the group
•    New Group... adds a new group
•    Rename group... renames the selected group
•    Delete Group - deletes the selected group and all its backup jobs

Backup4all can process multiple backup jobs at the same time. You can filter the backup list to see which backup jobs are executed at a certain time.

From the drop-down list above the backup list, you can filter the backup jobs in list. You can choose to see all groups, only the active jobs or only a specified group.

If there are many backups listed, you can search for a backup job by typing its name in the Type to search box on the bottom of the Backup List.
