It would be great to have a feature in this software which prevents shutdown of the computer until the backup is completed. I just hit restart as I forgot a backup was ongoing (transform actually). The good thing is that Veeam seems to pick up where it left off on the transform after rebooting my machine well!! But this would be an excellent feature - perhaps a tick box in the 'Settings' tab and if someone attempts to shutdown the computer, the Veeam Endpoint Backup windows could be maximised and brought to the front with a reminder message 'Backup in progress. Please stop the backup manually or wait for completion before shutting down your computer'

The only problem is that OS shutdown/restart operations are controlled by OS itself and postponing these may be threated badly by antivirus/malware scanning software as such actions are below MS software development security recommendation. Aside from that – Good request - thank you! Will see what we can do about it.
