How to manually change backup settings

May 26, 2017

Overview


There are two ways to change a backup setting that is not directly
accessible from the UI:

1.  A simpler and less error-prone option is to use an override mechanism
     as described https://bvckup2.com/support/forum/topic/1140.

2.  Another option is to edit the configuration file directly as described
     below. While not dramatically more complicated per se, it requires a
     bit more care and diligence.

How to find and edit job's configuration file


⦁    Right-click on the backup entry in program's main window,
      select "Open Folder" > "Configuration and Logging"

⦁    Exit the program via Menu > File > Exit, if you are running in
      service mode, stop the bvckup2 service

⦁    Open settings.ini in Notepad or any other text editor and
      adjust as needed

⦁    Save your changes, exit Notepad, start the program back up.

                                             VERY IMPORTANT

              Any changes made to an INI while the app is running
                                   will be ignored and discarded.
