Using Computer During Backup

Does it create a problem to use the computer while FB is backing up? Up to now I have been backing up at night after I quit using the computer fearing using it would screw up the backup.

Issue With Older Versions

I've been using FB for several years. In older versions, if a backup was canceled in mid execution it screwed the backed up set up. After the cancellation it thought files had been backed up that hadn't, so it would not back them up unless they changed again later. Thus an entire new backup was requ...

RESTORING UNBACKEDUP FILES

Expecting to have to restore my files, rather than do an entire backup I added some more current files to my backup. Because FBackup didn't back these files up will that cause any problems when restoring?

Re: Question about Restore

Thanks for your reply.

When you say "If the original files are still there, you will be asked if you want to overwrite the files or not."

Will you be asked for each one or can you just say do this for all original files?

Question about Restore

I've been using FBackup for several years but have never done a restore. I've restored individual files but never a complete restore as done by FBackup. My questions are, when FBackup does a restore: . . .o Does it restore all files or only files with an older date? . . .o I assume it puts all files...

Restore Didn't

I believe I'm using version 5.

I tried to restore just now and it never got past 0. I waited 30 minutes and gave up.

I've never restored before. I expected something like the backup. Reading some master file and then restoring the files in the backup that were newer.

How's it supposed to work?
