If you would like your files backed up automatically, choose a scheduled backup. Schedule your backup to occur when your computer is turned on and the files you have selected for backup are closed. To set a schedule:

  1. From the Start button, choose All Programs, Online Backup and then Online Backup.  
  2. Click the Schedule tab.  
  3. Select days and times for the backups to occur.

Note: Make sure your computer is on and any power management features that place the computer into sleep or hibernation mode are disabled.

Remember: You can always run a manual backup by right clicking the System Tray Icon and selecting the Start Backup option.
