Hi,

I am trying to get Mozbackup to run in automatic on Visa. I have changed the profile files to match my computer as recommend the installation notes, but it will not make the backup. It runs as a scheduled job on login-----the Mozbackuo window flashes for a second (blank), and nothing is backed up in the backup folder. The scheduler shows the job runs OK. For some reason I can't get the job to run from a command window---it says it can't be found. It runs OK from manual. Not much information on the net about the auto feature or that anyone is having trouble with it, or that anyone is really using it. Has ANYONE be able to get it running on auto?

I'm not aware of Mozbackup automatic backup feature.
If you want automatic backup, try FEBE: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/2109

Thanks for the reply. I need to backup both Firefox, & Thunderbird. MozBackup will do this and other applications too.. It works great on manual backup & restore. The unattended feature is the one that I am having a problem with. Their Website is not that clear in explaining the unintended feature, but the information is there. FEBE looks good, but at this time only does Firefox. I'm not ready to trust a Beta backup program.
