schedule backups

Postby barry8719 » Sat May 05, 2007 10:54 am

when I dont have Firefox in use when the FEBE need to backup because I set up the schedule, Firefox doesn't make a backup when I start Firefox a little later.

for example my schedule says it backups at 1AM on monday.
when I dont use Firefox at that moment en start firefox at 2am on monday it still doesn't backup.

Id like to see the future to still backup at the moment I start Firefox when there's a backup to do a few hours earlier.

I hope it's clear what I tried to tell :o

barry8719,

I've experimented with FEBE running backups during startup and shutdown, but there were too many technical issues to overcome. FEBE 5.0 contains an option to remind you to perform a backup if one was not completed after a set number of days.

How about starting a timer (preference setting) and starting the backup after 5 or more minutes after starting Firefox?
