I'm using the Mirror feature in FBackup. I thought that as soon as a file is created or changed, it would be updated on the mirror.

Is this correct?

If so, then I must have something set wrong. As a test I made a change to a file and saved it. I expected it to update the file on the mirror immediately, but after 2 hours, it still has not updated.

I then set a schedule to run anytime my PC is not used for 20 minutes, but after 3 hours of non-use the file has still not been updated.

Surely, I'm doing something wrong.

Please note FBackup won't automatically back up a file when it was modified.

FBackup will back up the source files when it is scheduled or manually started.

Was the computer in idle mode for 3 hours?

If you don't use the computer in that time does not mean other application did not run different tasks preventing the computer to be in idle mode.

Thanks Admin,

I doubt the PC was in idle mode because the virus software runs various scans when the system is not being used.

By-the-way... Very nice program.
