Scheduling every xx minutes

Post by PeterDr »

Working on a Win 10 computer, as the destination, connecting to a win 7 computer which currently hosts the folder I wish to copy every 30 minutes. I am using SyncBackPro V 7

How can I set up a profile in the scheduler to run every 30 minute?
It is set up to Run this profile every 0 days 0 hours 30 minutes 0 seconds
for a duration of 30 days 30 and click OK

The schedule then appears with
Schedule
Every 1 days, repeating every 15 ninutes for a duration of 30 days,

If I click ok ion t, the project will not run until the following day., then I suppose -- once per day for the next month

How can I set it up to run every 30 minute, beginning immediately?

Than you for your help.

Hi,

Configure the profile to Recur every [1] day and Repeat setting as:

Run this Profile every : [0] days, [0] hour, [30] minutes, [0] seconds

for a duration of : [0] days, [23] hours, [30] minutes, [0] seconds

Do not enable the 'Indefinitely' option.

Thank you

Aha! Excellent!! Thank you very much.

This will help me to keep data from several programs that I access from several computers synced with each other. This brings the Pro into the Sync. : :D

Hi,

1. Modify profile > Expert > When > Edit Schedule settings page
2. Click on Daily tab on the top
3. Configure the Start Date, set the Time as 7 am and 'Recur Every' setting to [1] day
4. Click Settings tab and tick 'Run this profile every' option
5. Configure the Repeat Interval as:
Run this Profile every : [0] days, [2] hour, [0] minutes, [0] seconds
for a duration of : [0] days, [6] hours, [0] minutes, [0] seconds
6. Do not enable the 'Indefinitely' check box
7. Save the settings

Thank you.

Many thanks for your suggestion, I had my options setup in a very similar way but the job would run outside the prescribed hours.

Hi,

a) Configure the profile to Recur every [1] day and Repeat setting as:

b) Run this Profile every : [0] days, [0] hour, [30] minutes, [0] seconds

c) for a duration of : [0] days, [23] hours, [30] minutes, [0] seconds

d) Do not enable the 'Indefinitely' option.

Thank you
I do not agree. The c) should be:
for a duration of : [1] days, [0] hours, [0] minutes, [0] seconds
And then it works :-)
