How to get a daily report with all backup executions
Backup4all creates a log file for each backup execution, log that can be also sent by email to a specified email address. Sometimes an administrator wants to get a single file with a daily report, including all Backup4all executions. This can be done from the Event Viewer service in Windows. This article explains how to obtain that report.
This article will explain all the backup job icons that could appear for running, warnings or errors. The backup job icons will help you to easily recognize a specific backup job or to see which jobs have warnings or errors and try to fix the problems.
In Backup4all you can set different actions to be executed after the backup: shutdown, log off, stand by or hibernate. Such an action will be executed only after the backup is finished and the result of that action will not be logged in Backup4all.
The Backup list is the section visible in the middle column of the main window. It contains all the backup jobs defined that can be grouped into tags for easy handling. You can drag and drop backups in the list to re-order them.
