Running backup when a drive is plugged in

Dec 05, 2017

Description


As of release 78.9 it's possible to run a backup when an external drive is plugged into the computer or when a remote share becomes accessible.

More specifically, this option allows scheduling an immediate backup run when the job exits from the "Waiting for a device/share..." state.

Configuration


This is a per-job option and it is Off by default. In order to turn it on:

    1. Right-click on a backup job in program's main window
    2. Select "Open folder" > "Configuration and Logging"
    3. Use Notepad to create a text file called override.ini there
    4. Put the following line in it

        conf.run_on_device_arrival             1

    5. Save the ini, exit Notepad, restart Bvckup 2
