What happens if my pc is switched off when the backup is scheduled? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does OneCare just skip a scheduled backup when the PC is switched off at the scheduled time? Or does it do the backup right after the PC is switched on again?

  • If a Tune-up is scheduled and missed because the PC is off or sleeping, it will start shortly after the PC is started. If a backup is missed, I believe it will not run again until the next scheduled time unless it was part of the Tune-up schedule.
