Introduction

Zoolz offers continuous data protection (CDP) through customizable scheduling settings. (Learn more)

However, missed scheduled backups can pose a challenge. When a scheduled backup is missed, Zoolz automatically postpones it to the next scheduled interval. For immediate backup after a missed schedule, the user can use the Windows Task Scheduler.

How to Configure Zoolz to run Scheduled Backups after it is Missed

  1. Since Zoolz Archive uses the Windows Task Scheduler to run the scheduled backup, open the Windows Task Scheduler on your machine. (Control Panel Administrative Tools → Double-click Task Scheduler)
  2. From the left panel of the Windows Task Scheduler, select Task Scheduler Library.
  3. Double-click the Zoolz Start Backup task from the list of your scheduled tasks.
  4. From the Settings tab, select the Run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed option.
  5. Click OK. If  Task Scheduler asks you to enter the login password of your Windows user account, please do so and click OK.

Additional Tip!

Regularly review your backup schedule to align with your data protection needs.
