A.The Backup section consists of two sub-sections, Compression and Include Path Information.

       

1.        1.        Compression:  You can set the default compression method for backups. You must select one of three methods:

Fast: produces the fastest data compression but the largest file size.

Standard (the default): produces normal data compression with a smaller file size.

Maximum: produces the best compression ratio resulting in the smallest file size, however the maximum setting takes longer to compress.

 

2.Include Path Information: You can set the default setting for how directory paths are saved in the backup. You must select one of three methods:

No path information: stores no path information in the backup.

Full path (the default): stores the entire path information without the drive letter.

Specify Path: allows you to choose the path that is saved in the backup. With Specify Path you can store the files in a directory different than the one it was stored in originally.

 

B.The Restore section consists of three sub-sections, Overwrite Options, Create Sub-Directories, and Use Original Path Info.

 

1.Overwrite Options: Were you determine how InBack will treat restored files that encounter files of the same name during the restore process. You must select one of two methods:

Overwrite: will cause InBack to overwrite existing files automatically without prompting the user.

Prompt user (the default): will cause InBack to prompt the user before overwriting the file during the restore process.

 

2.Create Sub-Directories: This check box will create the sub-directories that are stored with the files in the backup during the restore process. The default setting for this is enabled.

 

3.Use Original Path Info: Mark this check box and InBack will use the original path that the file was stored in before it was backed up during the restore process. The default setting is enabled.

 

C.The third section, Backup Reminder, consists of three sections, Remind Every, Show Pop Up Menu, and Suspend Timer.                

 

1.Remind Every: This check box lets you set up a backup reminder. Type in the number of minutes that you want the reminder to remind you in this box. The default setting is 0 which means no reminder. The maximum number of minutes that can be set in the Remind Every box is 255.

 

2.Show Pop Up Menu: Marking this check box will cause a context menu to pop up when the reminder goes off. When this check box is not checked it will cause an audible sound to occur when the reminder goes off. The default setting is disabled (unchecked). The audible sound is set in the Event Sounds tab. This check box is not available when Remind Every is set to zero minutes.

 

3.Suspend Timer: Marking this check box turns off the backup reminder. The reminder will remain off until this check box is unchecked. The default setting is disabled (unchecked). This check box is not available when Remind Every is set to zero minutes.

 

D.Start Minimized to Icon Tray:  Marking this check box will cause InBack to start in the icon tray box in the lower right hand corner of the Task bar when the program starts up. The default setting is disabled.

 

E.Confirm Program Exit: Marking this check box will cause InBack to prompt for confirmation when the program is being exited. The default setting is enabled.

 

F.Shut off Tooltips: Marking this check box will cause InBack to not display the Tooltips when the cursor is placed over an icon or element on the screen. The default setting is disabled.

 

G.Default Mask Theme: The Default Mask Theme is used to select a mask theme to automatically display when setting up a new project. Use the ellipsis button to select from a list of mask themes.
