Understanding that this is a free endpoint product, I have included a few realistic changes that would certainly add value.

1. Create multiple backup jobs, such as an entire computer backup and a file level backup that can be backed up to separate locations if necessary.
2. Specify backup job intervals
3. Specify backup job pause if running on a low percentage of battery
4. Backup at logon, or specify a time period after logon to run the backup

Hello Darryl,
Create multiple backup jobs, such as an entire computer backup and a file level backup that can be backed up to separate locations if necessary.

Honestly, no plans for this one, but when speaking of multiple locations your request sounds right, so I believe it’s something we should discuss with the team.
Specify backup job intervals

You mean to set backup schedule to start a backup for every X time period?
Specify backup job pause if running on a low percentage of battery

We are planning to include the similar functionality in GA
Backup at logon, or specify a time period after logon to run the backup

Agree – nice to have.

With regards to your query: "You mean to set backup schedule to start a backup for every X time period?", you are correct, for example specify the backup for example to run hourly and between 8AM and 5PM Monday to Friday.

Darryl,
Hm from the top of my head you can use the regular schedule plus the backup no more often than option to run a backup every XXX days.

Example (that would only work for ‘days’ though):

- Set a schedule to run at XX:XX every day.
- Set a backup to more often than timer to 5 days
- You will get a one scheduled backup in 5 days
