Create a Task

Generally, you may set a scheduled task the same way you set a regular action for creating an image of a disk, partition, or an entire hard drive.

To create a new task:

1 Click Scheduler/Create Script on the Action Selection panel

The Scheduled Tasks panel will appear.

You may create a task for creating an image, image from files, or verifying an image.

2 Click the Create Task button on the Scheduled Tasks panel
3 Select the objects you want to backup on the Partition Selection panel, image destination on the Image Destination panel, specify necessary parameters on the Image options , Notification options , Backup options panels, and on the Rotation options panel.

Right-click the selected partition and select Backup selected files if you want to backup only individual files on the partition.

Images can be replicated , that is, their copies may be saved to one or other different locations.

Attention: If you a going to use a network drive, please note that if this drive is connected under your account it will be inaccessible to the task run under the local system account unless this drive is also connected to the local system account using the same disk letter. To avoid this problem, you need either to run the task under your own account, or use a UNC path in the form: \\[[domain;]username[:password]@]hostname\share\path .

Go to the Create an Image topic for more details.

Please note that you may use Rotation options (backup sets) for creating complex data backup tasks and maintaining data files.

4 Specify the time or event at which the task should start on the Task execution schedule panel and click the Next button

You may specify time/event options on this panel.
