I searched the forum and can't find any info on this topic.


I want to set my wife up with her own separate user acct (login) on a Win7 64bit PC. I'd like to install her own FBackup program, and only backup her files, not all the files from the same programs. (Such as: I have Thunderbird installed on both user accts, but only want to back up hers).


Does FBackup install separately for each user acct (login) on a PC? In other words, 1 FBackup install on her user acct, and a separate FBackup on my user acct?


Anyway, what is the bast way to do this?


Thanks...

Hi,


Each user will have his own jobs. You can define backup jobs to back up only your user files.

Must I install FBackup separately in each user account?


Do I need separate destinations drives for each user account?


Thanks...

Hi,


FBackup will be installed once for all users but when you open it under a different user, it will start with no backup jobs inside. This way, every user will have his own jobs.


On the backup jobs you create under a different user, you can select any available destination drive you want. It can be the same on all accounts or it can be different.

Thank you very much. This is just what I needed to know.


One last detail. If I use 1 destination drive for both user accts, should I create 2 partitions and backup each user to their own partition?

Hi,


There is no need for two partitions but if you want, you can do that to better organize the backups.
