What does bTray.exe do?

bTray loads when I switch on the computer but what does it do? Is it necessary if I do not do automatic backups?

Failure to shutdown after backup

I recently installed version 5.5 835 and set up a job and ticked 'shutdown after completion'. However it has never shutdown but ends with an error (attached).
Can someone explain what is happening and, hopefully, indicate how to overcome this problem?

Re: Auto shutdown after backup

Sad news. On the second try it failed to shut down. What a pity. A beautiful program rather ruined by some careless programming.

Re: Auto shutdown after backup

I am using Win 7 (64) and had no problems with previous versions but lost the backup with build 5.218. I today installed the latest build 5.230 (listed as FINAL) and on testing the backup worked as required. It would seem that although no one admitted it, this was a bug in build 213. Only time will ...

Re: Auto shutdown after backup

The computer does not "try to shutdown" -- nothing happens and I have to shut down manually.
Event viewer does not show any errors.

Auto shutdown after backup

My daily routine is to run Fbackup every evening. In previous versions I set it to backup and then shut down the PC. I have done the same with version 5. It backs up everything as requested, then displays the usual message saying shut down will occur in x seconds but it never shuts down. Is there a ...

FB 5 does not shut down after backup

I run FBackup last thing at night and version 4 always shut down the PC when finished. I have now switched to v5 and set it to shut down under Advanced, saved the settings but is does not shut down. I have reset this several times but it still fails to carry out this action.
Any advice?

<p>Hi,<br /> I am not quite sure what you mean by 'catalog file' but if this is the file(s) listed when I go to View/Open Folder/ Destination Folder then I cannot send this as the zipped file is 16MB. Even the individual backup zip files (I have two, one of data from the C drive and the other data o...

Naturally it has to be re-installed if it is on the C drive which has just been reformatted. The question is, if it had been installed on the D:\ drive which was not formatted would it be able to operate on files on any of the available drives.

<p>Yes, the XX_C.zip file is the only file in the destination folder. I have checked this on a number of occasions and the number changes daily in synchrony with my daily backups. It just seems that when the program goes for a restore it uses an old, incorrect number ?based on the date. There are no...
