"Intelligent" Backup Scheduling RRS feed

  • Question

  • A relatively small gripe, but ...

    I don't connect all my PC's to the network every day, so when I do I get the "Critical Alert" indicating I haven't backed-up.   If I connect AFTER the scheduled backup time (20.00 hrs in my case) I'd like the system to offer the option to re-schedule the last missed backup to run at once.  So it would go like this:

    Backup scheduled at 20.00 hrs
    I connect the Laptop at 21.00 hrs
    WHS pops-up a message saying "Do you want to carry-out the backup schedu;led for 20.00?"  (or words to that effect).
    I click "YES"/"OK"

    This would be simpler than having to run a manual backup and would make the whole system more "consistent".
