2) can i avoid a profile running when a program is active?
for example wait when firefox.exe or C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Firefox\firefox.exe are not running

Hi,
Source are changed and When my computer is idle
Please use the settings configured in the When > Changes settings page. I suggest reading the help file for additional details about ‘This must be idle computer time’ setting. With When > Changes settings page opened, press F1 to open the contextual help.
When a program is not working
Note that there is no AND relationship between When > Changes setting and When > Program setting. In other words, the profile will be executed when either condition is met.

However, you can achieve this by using the runtime script ‘WaitForFinishEx.bas’ script file in SyncBackPro profile. This script stops a profile from starting until a program has finished (or isn't running). It is available in SyncBackPro’s program folder.

1. First, you need to install the script from Preferences > Script menu

2. Then Modify the profile > Scripts > tick the runtime script ‘Wait for a program to finish before starting the profile’ from the right panel and click on Apply button

3. A new settings page ‘Wait for Finish’ will be added to the profile setup window, where you can configure the program name and the delay setting.

Then test the profile run to see if it works?

Thank you
