<p>According to page 26 of the FBackup User Manual (PDF file 2009) under the TOOLS > OPTIONS menu there should be a LOGS and history config window. I only see:</p> <p>GENERAL</p> <p>STARTUP</p> <p>UPDATES</p> <p>under the OPTIONS menu.</p> <p>Is this a recent change or am I doing something wrong? I ...

You cannot restore the OS using FBackup.</p></blockquote> <p>So even if I restore from the recovery DVDs (and thus have the basic O/S installed on the new hard drive), I can't use FB to restore updates, new INI files, etc. that are in...

<p>> Can you edit the start time?</p> <p>I just created a new job to run weekly on staurday at midnight using the internal scheduler. It added an entry to TASK SCHEDULER that reads: FBackup Scheduler_Owner which I guess would start the internal FB scheduler. Yes, I can edit the start time. By defaul...

<p>When I do that I only have two logs - one is a non-scheduled full backup I did a week ago, the other log is for the previous night's data backup. It seems to be wrtiten over every night. Maybe I'm not setting FB up right. I originally had one daily job to back up all data. Then I realized I neede...

<p>So FBackup will only restore data files?</p> <p>My problem is that the computer did not come with a Windows DVD, it has a restore partition on the hard drive. I made restore DVD's, so I can restore the computer to the original state. I was then hoping that I could install FBackup, and then restor...

The exclamation went away the next day.


About the logs, it appears that FB only saves the last log, is that true? There are abbreviated logs kept in another file, but I can only see a detailed log of the last backup, and that is overwritten daily, right?

<p>I always login as "owner" and owner is an administrator. However, when I tried to copy those files I was denied access. I think I ended up taking possession of the files and then I could copy them. It made no sense to me as I should have already had ownership of the files. Any idea what that SHAD...
