Best way to suspend all scheduled profiles temporarily?

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Best way to suspend all scheduled profiles temporarily?

Post by cgrymala »

I have a bunch of profiles/groups scheduled to either copy files to or from my primary external hard drive. However, I need to reformat that drive (which will take a while), and I don't want any of those scheduled tasks to attempt to run while I'm re-formatting it, or while I'm trying to move files back to that drive.

What is the best way to temporarily suspend all scheduled profiles in SyncBack Free? Do I need to export my profiles, delete all of the schedules, then re-import my profiles once I've finished re-configuring my external drive, or is there a simpler way to do this? Thanks.

Hi,

Delete the schedule task and recreate them once you have finished formatting your external drive. Also, please ensure that you have disabled other automatic triggers in SyncBackFree e.g. When > Periodically and When > Hot key and close SyncBackFree when reformatting the drive.

Thank you.
