I recently installed this (v4.6) on a friends computer. on Windows XP.

We were looking for an option to do backup on Shutdown - so that when he clicks the Shutdown Windows button (Start menu) it would backup his data first.

The Titan backup he was using used to do that (but it expired and GFI replacement looks a mess...).

I thought that one of the older versions of FBackup I had seen used to have a Backup-on-Shutdown, but does not seem to be there in latest 4.6 version we tried.

I searched here, but no posts recent, only an old one saying it is on the wish list.

Will that be available soon?

Or did I miss where that setup is located.

There is no option in FBackup to start a backup at computer shutdown. That feature is available only in Backup4all, our commercial edition.

In FBackup you can set the computer to shutdown after a backup execution.

To do that, open Backup Properties->Advanced.

In the "Run action after backup" section, select Shutdown.

Press Save.

Thanks for the answer.

This may do it - will experiment with the suggested procedure.
