Can I set the time for Em Client to do auto Backups


I have chosen Auto backup.

EM Client wants to back up the database at 7:30 each evening and asks me to close the program first.

Although not a great pain, i would like to set it to do this at a time when I would like, and if I have to have the program open to do it, a setting to close the program automatically, when the back up is due.

Is this option on the road map anywhere?



We plan to implement this option to eM Client but until it is done, you can change the time of eM Client backup in Windows Task scheduler. Run taskschd.msc - open Tasks scheduler Library - find “eM Client Database Backup” and change the time in its Properties. Hope it helps.

brilliant, thank you, George.

I didn’t know that little program existed, so thank you for introducing it to me :slight_smile:
