Scheduled Backup

  1. I would like to set up a scheduled task that will make windows backup run whenever I plug in a drive. Is this possible? And if so, what would I need to enter into the task scheduler fields to make it run? I am using Windows 10 Home.

    Haven't heard about that yet. anyone else?
    Usually we schedule the task to start daily/weekly/monthly, or to start when you turn on the computer. well, this might be a new feature that they should start to develop. :cool:

    Not aware of an event triggering the backup. What's wrong with date scheduling?

    Well I have an external drive that I put all my backup files on, and it's a pain to have to go into the backup settings to manually do the update. I mean I COULD wait for it to do it's scheduled backup, but that would mean that I would have to leave the drive plugged in like all day or whatever...
