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.

Hi,
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.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html

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.
