Can FBackup wake Windows 10 for scheduled backups?

Post by itm »

I currently run my FBackup jobs overnight on my Windows 10 PC, but would like to leave my PC in sleep mode overnight when the backups are not running. Is it possible for Fbackup to wake the PC from sleep when it needs to execute a scheduled backup, then put the PC back to sleep when the backup jobs have completed?

Hi,

Yes, you can do that.
When creating the scheduled task in FBackup, please make sure you select the "Wake the computer to run this task" option on "When" page of the scheduler.

In order to shutdown the computer after backup, please go to Backup Properties->Advanced page.
Under "Run action after backup" section, select <Shut down>
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
