This page describes the fourth step of creating a backup task with the New Task Wizard.
On the fourth step of the New Task Wizard, you need to select type of backup and versioning options. Advanced users can also change comparison settings and error handling settings (read below).
Type of backup determines the program′s behavior when running backups regularly on a schedule. There are three or five basic variants, depending from the basic or advanced wizard mode:
For full backup with versioning, you can click the Versions rotation settings... button to specify how many versions of backups you want to keep. This dialog can also set a quantity of mixed backups kept by the program before considering old mixed backup cycles obsolete.
By default, when running incremental or differential backup, the program will create a new version of file if File size or Modification time attributes are different. Creation time is not checked, because some storage file systems (for example, FTP) don′t have this attribute.
This behavior is task-specific, i.e. it can be different for different tasks. To change it, click the Change button in Comparison settings.
Error handling is an advanced mode option that lets you set the program′s behavior when it encounters an error:
You can choose whether the task must stop on any error, stop only on critical errors, or don′t stop on errors at all.
If there are any errors during backup, the task will end with an Error status.
When finished selecting type of backup and specifying advanced settings, click Next.
