If your computer was turned off during the backup time, the scheduled backups won't run. In this case, a solution is to configure the scheduler to start the backup as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed. Please note this article applies only to Windows Vista, Windows 7 or newer.
An automated backup is a scheduled backup configured to run daily, weekly, monthly or with a custom frequency set by the user. The backup does not need to be performed manually because the application will start and execute the backup at its scheduled time.
