When scheduling a backup job using Windows Task Scheduler you show the following example:

"C:\Program Files\Softland\FBackup 4\fbaSchedStarter.exe" /R "job name" -STD
Would you please explain the /R and -STD arguments. Are there any others that can be used and what do they do?
Thanks

Hi,
The scheduler used by FBackup is the internal scheduler. FBackup does not use the Windows Task Scheduler.

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

Howdy,
Thanks for your quick response. I'am aware that FBackup has an internal scheduler, but would still like to know what the /R and -STD arguments do in your example that I listed above. Also are there any other arguments that can be used and what do they accomplish?
Thanks

Other parameters:

/CLOSE - will close the application after run

/C - will clear the backup before run

/L - will load the backup
