Basic Concepts

  • What is a SyncBack Profile

    When SyncBack is first launched a dialogue window opens asking you whether you would like to create a profile. A profile stores information about the folders or files you would like to backup or synchronize using SyncBack. Once you've created a profile you'll be able to click a single button on the toolbar to carry out a specified task in the future.

  • Profile types:

    There are three types of profiles you can create:

    1. Backup: for copying files to another directory, drive, FTP server, etc.
    2. Synchronisation: for keeping the contents of two directories identical.
    3. Group: contains links to other profiles.

  • Schedule SyncBack to run automatically

    SyncBack interfaces with the Windows Task Scheduler to allow you to run profiles automatically at certain times, e.g. run a backup profile every day at 5am. On Windows XP you can access the task scheduler via the Start menu (All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Scheduled Tasks).

  • Restoring a Backup

    A restore operation swaps the source and destination directories: i.e. the source directory becomes the destination directory and visa-versa. A restore may not work the way you expect: e.g. some of the files in the destination directory may be older than their equivalent entries in the source and therefore may not replace the source entries (depending upon what your settings are).

    Restoring a backup in SyncBack is a simple matter of selecting a profile and clicking the 'Restore' button located in the lower menu or from the main menu under 'Task'.
