SimplySync Backup unattended shortcut

Post by wmmiller »

Fred,

How can I create an unattended backup shortcut for each created backup plan? I have three backup plans for my file, email, cameras and remote support server. Actually it’s basically the same plan but each plan backs up to a different NAS in a different building. I know I can just open or click on the .sall file but it’s nice to just click the unattended shortcut and have it take off.

One more thing. Have you ever considered making a real time backup version of SimplySync Backup? 8-)

Hi Bill.

Yeah, I have a lot of plans for the future, but I'm stuck with the C++ UVK for now. I'ts definitely a lot of work.

You can easily create unattended shortcuts for your .sall files, but that option is not part of the interface yet. You can also turn SimplySync Backup into a real time backup tool by creating scheduled tasks that run those .sall files in unattended mode.

The command is as follows:

Code: Select all

"SSB EXE Path" ".SALL file path" /Passive
"SSB EXE Path" ".SALL file path" /Quiet
Both /Passive and /Quiet start the backup automatically, and close when it's done. /Passive shows backup progress information, while /Quiet does not show anything.

Example:

Code: Select all

C:\Program Files (x86)\SimplySync Backup\SimplySync.exe "C:\Users\Fred\Desktop\MyBackup.sall" /Passive
You can just make a copy of your current SSB desktop shortcut and edit its target property.
One thing we humans have in common is that we are all different. So, if you think you're weird because you're different from everyone else, then we are all weird.
