Re: Using shortcuts to launch tasks

You could create a task in the user interface with the Schedule type: Manual. Wouldn't that be the same?

Re: Computer not being woken from sleep

A sleeping computer is asleep. The program won't wake it up. You could create a Task Schedule in Windows that wakes the computer up some minute before the scheduled backup task.

Re: Schedule not being respected

When a task is executed it is placed on a queue. If another task is already running before it, the new task will stay on queue until the current one gets executed. If the current tasks takes a loooong time, it is possible that the queue gets saturated until the current task ends. I don't know of any...

Re: Full backup job not overwriting old backups

You don't need to wipe it. I would set up it this way:

1- Uncheck Create separated backups using timestamps
2- Check the incremental option (good for speed)
3- Eventually, check the mirror option

This will just write over the old files, but only those that have been changed.

Re: Extremly slow when backing up to cloud

Are you using FTP or SFTP? Are you uploading a lot of small files perhaps?

Re: Always backup all the files

Is "Clear archive attributes" unchecked? This must be checked for the archive attribute to work. Oh and the task must not be compressed if I remember it correctly!

Re: Backup into Same Folder Structure

Uncheck "Create separated backups using time stamps" in your task.

Re: Differential backup - deleted missing source files

Yes, Mirror task as indicated above. Be careful with that option. If you by mistake delete a file and want to get it back from the backup, then you won't find it there. Mirror is NOT a backup!
