Starting Backup Expert

You may run the Backup Expert software using Start button menu or by clicking the Backup Expert icon on your desktop.

Overview of the User Interface

Backup Expert appears as a typical Windows application with intuitively clear user interface. All the commands available in the program are available through the menu. The toolbar at the top will allow you to access the most frequently used commands. The taskbar on the left of the program's window will provide you the quick access to the typical tasks that the program can perform.

For more information read program overview, user interface, and settings dialog.

System tray commands

When Backup Expert starts, it places its icon in the system notification area (tray) near the clock

If you have scheduled any backup operations, the program will perform them automatically and display the balloon tip in the tray when an operation is complete.

You can use that icon to access the program's major commands when the program's main window is minimized or closed. Just right-click on the icon in the system tray and then select the command to be run on the list that appears.

You can customize the tray icon menu in the settings dialog.

Stopping Document Backup

Simply select the Exit item on the File menu or right-click on the program's icon in the system tray and then select the Exit command on the list that appears.

You can also click on the X (Close) button in the upper-right corner of the program's window to close the window. However, clicking on the Close will not actually close the program; instead, it will minimize it to the system notification area.
