Exit outlook before scheduled backup

Postby molle83 » Fri Oct 13, 2017 9:21 am

I want to backup my Outlook .pst-file but the only why to backup this file is when outlook is not running.
I have set an schedule backup for backup my .pst file at 16,00 (4 PM) and want Fbackup to exit Outlook when the backup is going to start.
In advanced you can set "Run action before backup" and "Run action after backup".
In "Run action before backup" I would like to exit Microsoft Outlook but the only choice is <Clear backup> in the droplist for "Run program or Action"?

Hi,

In FBackup you can use only the predefined actions to be executed.
If you want to use your own batch file or custom commands, you need to use Backup4all, our commercial product.
