I have set up FBackup on a home network. One of the computers has multiple users, (Joe, Bill, Bob, etc). If I have set the scheduled backup task while logged into Joe's user account, will the backup still run if Joe's account is not logged on? For example, the computer may be left active with Bill's account open on the desktop or all may have logged out and it is at the Vista Welcome Screen which shows all users and logged on/off status. Does it matter. The backup that I have scheduled is suppose to backup all user files.

If the backup scheduler was set up from the Joe's account, it will run only if Joe is logged on. Otherwise the scheduled backup won't run.

Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here:
