We have several users who are using their laptops 18+ hours per day, who would be interested in a one button "on-demand" backup. I'm sure this can be scripted, but I haven't been able to locate the script yet. Please help!
Do you want this to run at a set time, or have the user click something?
If you are talking about BUDR (Acronis) and you open live connect to your users (via agent icon), there is a button on that page to run incremental backup.
Want the user to click something. The simpler the better.
Yes, BUDR. Don't think we want to give users Live Connect access though. Hoping to do something using the Acronis Command Line.
Newton's third law...
1. Bat file to use the command line tool to write an event log entry. This is the user trigger (action).
2. Monitor the event log for that event.
3. Run a procedure to call the BUDR command line for a backup on the agent machine. (reaction!)
