You can schedule a backup either from the Backup Properties window or from the Scheduler view.
Open the Backup Properties window by pressing the Properties button (3.properties_32) from the Jobs ribbon tab then selecting the Scheduler page. Alternatively you can open the Scheduler view window by pressing the Scheduler (F11) button located at the bottom of the application interface.
The difference between the two methods is that the Scheduler view displays all existing scheduled tasks whereas the Properties window only focuses on the job that is currently selected.
Backup4all uses the Windows Task Scheduler in order to run the scheduled backups. By default, the option to Run only if the user is logged on is selected. If you want the task to run when the user is logged off, you need to select the Run whether the user is logged on or not option. You can use the Windows Help in order to find out more information about scheduling a task using the Task Scheduler.

In order to add a new scheduled backup from the Scheduler view, press the Add button that's found on the Scheduler ribbon tab.
In the Scheduler Properties window, on General page you can set whether the main application interface is brought up during a running scheduled backup.
After defining the scheduled backup, you must establish a timetable. In the When tab you can specify multiple conditions for executing a backup. If you skip this step the default Windows value will be used (current time). Use the Windows Help in order to find out more information about scheduling a task using the Task Scheduler.
The last step is to select the action to be executed. By default the backup action is selected, but you can also schedule a test, repair, cleanup or restore action.
