Backup tasks are used for creating backup copies of files. A backup task may be created using the wizard.

Specify the following settings when creating a backup task:  

  • set of files for which backup copies will be created;
  • storage where backup tasks will be created;
  • conditions of starting the backup process. 

If you want to create a backup on a My Book (Western Digital) hard drive, format the drive into the NTFS file system prior to start.

To create a backup task, do the following: 

Step 1. Open Kaspersky Small Office Security 3 for Personal Computer.

Step 2. Click Backup.

Step 3. In the Backup window, go to the Backup tab and click the button Create a backup task.

 

The Create Backup Task Wizard will start.

Step 4. In the Create backup task window select for what files a backup task should be created.

You can select one of the following file categories:

  • My Documents and Desktop — all files from the My Documents folder and from desktop will be backed up.
  • Movies and Video — video files will be backed up.
  • Pictures and Photos — this option will create backup copies for all graphic files found on your computer.
  • Music — all music files will be backed up.
  • Custom files — this option creates backup copies of the files manually selected by the user.

For all categories, except for Custom files, a list of files is available. To view it, click the link with the number of files in each category.

 

To proceed, click Next.

Step 5. If at step 4 you selected the category Custom files, then in the Location of files section you can create the list of files for backup copying. If you selected a different category, go to step 6.

In the Location of files section in the left part of the window, add the necessary folders:

  1. Click the Add folder button.

 

  1. In the Select file or folder window, select the object.
  2. Click OK

 

  1. The selected folder will appear in the Location of files section. Use the Categories of files filter to select a certain type of files. Click the link Hidden and system files and select or deselect check boxes to adjust the view. 

  • To specify certain files and folder to be backed up, click the number of files in the Location of files box (top part of the window) and adjust the list by using check boxes.
  • Click OK.

 

  • To proceed, click Next.

Step 6.  Select the storage where backup copies will be located. 

By default, Kaspersky Small Office Security 3 for Personal Computer creates a storage on drive C. You can use a default storage, connect another storage or create a new storage (to do this, click the Add storage / Connect storage link and follow the wizard). Alternatively, you can activate an online storage.

 

Click Next to move to the next step.

Step 7. Specify the conditions of starting the backup process:

  • if you wish to run backup tasks according to a schedule, check the box Run automatically according to the schedule and specify the required schedule;
  • if you wish to rerun tasks that were missed at the scheduled time (for example, due to restart or OS failure), check the box Run skipped tasks.

Click Next to move to the next step.

Step 8. In the Create backup task window, enter the name of the new task and, if necessary, select the option Run task when the wizard is complete.

Click the Finish button to create the task with the specified settings.

Step 9. At the Summary step, enter the task name and confirm the task creation by clicking the Finish button.
