Using FBackup with a 2nd monitor - inaccessible Properties pop-up window

Post by gump »

Minor annoyance here, but frustrating.

Working remotely I often switch between working in a dual monitor (laptop screen + external monitor) setup (when home) and a single laptop screen setup (when not home).

When I run FBackup in the dual monitor setup I often edit the Properties of a backup job in the 2nd monitor. This works fine.
However, when I try to do an backup job with only the single laptop screen and I try to edit the Properties the pop-up window is in the virtual monitor and I can do anything since the focus is 'gone' to where the external monitor used to be. I then have to kill the FBackup process to regain control.

Has anyone seen this before? This is low-priority since the work-around is just to run FBackup in a dual-monitor setup (or never use the 2nd monitor when running FBackup).

Hi,

I created a ticket for this problem and we will fix it.
Do you know you can monitor your backups remotely with Backup4all Monitor? You can read more here: https://www.backup4all.com/backup4all-monitor.html
