2017 Holidays List

Sun, 25 Dec 2016 13:59:00 -0600

While 2017 is approaching fast, we have updated our holidays database that AnyFileBackup uses to determine which day is a holiday. Now the holiday database covers the entire 2017.

With the holidays database you can determine whether (1) a task will launch on non-holidays only (that is all days excluding all holidays), or (2) a task will launch on holidays only (that is excluding all non-holidays). Holidays (do not include St and Su) are country-specific and include only state-wide official holidays. You can also set up your own list of holidays.

Whether a task runs on weekdays or weekends can be defined separately.

To access the holidays list, please go to ‘Task Properties’ > ‘Start’ > ‘Holidays’ > ‘Properties’ > ‘Configure’.

    Managing FTP, Cloud, E-mail and Other Access Data in Backup Tasks

    Sun, 02 Oct 2016 04:03:00 -0500

    When you set up backup or sync tasks regularly, you may need to use the same information many times: login and password to a corporate FTP server, archive passwords, lists of e-mail recipients, PGP keys. Entering all this info again and again is dull and time consuming.

    We have found a solution. AnyFileBackup has a system of so-called ‘accounts’. An ‘account’ is a set of pre-defined settings that is generally used, for example, to access FPTs, mail servers, Google Drive, Amazon, OneDrive, etc.

    Once set up, you then just select such account from a list in task settings. No need to configure anything again.

    For example, access settings for an FTP server look like this:

    Accounts can be accessed in two ways:

    • from task settings: by pressing the ‘Configure’ button in ‘Account properties’. (Example demonstrates how to access an FTP account)
    • from the main window: by pressing the ‘Program Settings’ button and then selecting the ‘Accounts’ item. Then select a relevant type of account and press the corresponding ‘Configure’ button. (Example demonstrates how to access an FTP account)

    AnyFileBackup uses accounts to store the following data:

    1. Cloud-related:
    2. E-mail related:
    3. FTP, HTTP and other Internet related:
    4. Internal and external security related:
    5. Other:
      • SMS to configure access to an Android-power smartphone

    Macro Explained

    Sun, 15 May 2016 02:49:00 -0500

    When you copy files, do you need to add current time or date to a file or target folder name? If you do, then AnyFileBackup can make it easy as never before.

    It is achieved with macros (aka 'macro strings’). Macro is a variable value that changes according to circumstances. For example, if you use macro ${DATE} then it will be converted into a real date, which will be 15 May 2016 if it happens today.

    So, how to use it in practice? An example will explain that:

    Target folder: X:\\${DATE} -- Weekly Backup\\

    In a real life a target folder will look like that: X:\\2016-05-16 -- Weekly Backup\\

    Want to change the date format? It is also easy—use any of the following:

    • ${DATE=yyyy-mm-dd} for 2016-05-15
    • ${DATE=yy-mmm-dd} for 2016-May-15
    • ${DATE=mmm dd, yyyy} for May 16, 2015 and so on.

    You can add time. A target folder string will look like that:

    X:\\${DATE} ${TIME} -- Weekly Backup\\ that will transform into X:\\2016-05-15 23-17-26 -- Weekly Backup\\

    AnyFileBackup uses many other macro strings, which you may find here.
