Scheduling a Task
You can automate creating images by creating a task which will run at a scheduled time (for unattended execution).
When disk image software Active@ Disk Image is executing a scheduled task it runs without user interaction and does not have a GUI interface.
If the execution started when a user was logged on, a console window will be shown displaying the progress of the operation being executed. You do not need to be logged on in order to execute a scheduled task.
If the execution has started when a user is not logged on the above mentioned console window will not appear — Disk Image will continue running until the task is finished.
Scheduled backups use a different schema of naming the images.
Every image created automatically is placed in a folder named Backup — <DATETIME> under the main backup folder.
You may control how many previous copies of scheduled backups you want to keep. It is configurable in the Scheduling tab of the Settings dialog.
Selecting 0 means that only the most recent copy will be kept. The previous copies of a scheduled backup are erased only after the current backup is successfully created.
Maximum incremental backups sets the default value for the number of incremental backups in sequence after a full backup. A value of 5 means that a full backup will be created and 5 incremental backups after it, then the sequence repeats again — 1 full and 5 incremental.
Task scheduling is not supported when disk image software Active@ Disk Image is running under Windows PE (from a Boot Disk).
