Hello. I have 2 questions about this wonderful program.


1. Is it possible to configure a backup job where any empty folder won't get copied?

If I use filters to restrict which files are copied, I get many empty folders because none of the files inside them matched any filter.


2. If I schedule a job to start, for example, at 12:00 every day, and the computer is off at that time, is it possible to force the program to run the backup if the time has been missed? (eg. if I'd turn on the computer at 12:10, it would realise the backup time was missed and start it right away).


Thanks in advance.

Hi,


You cannot do that in FBackup.

1. Empty folders will always be backed up.

2. You cannot run a missed scheduler as soon as the computer is on.

Oh, I guess I'll have to go back to using SyncBack... :(

Thanks anyway.
