Expert Mode: When, Program

 

When | Programs

 

A profile can be configured to run whenever another programs starts or exits (closes). For example, you may want SyncBack to make a backup of your documents as soon as your word processor is closed. It can be configured to run interactively or silently. Also, you can have it monitor several programs.

 

This profile settings page can use and create shared settings.

 

warning

Important: SyncBack uses features in Windows to detect when programs start or stop. If this feature is used then the CPU usage for the WmiPrvSE.exe service will average around 1% but may increase and get as high as 10%. This is a known drawback of using this feature.
