How to use Acebackup from commandline?

Post by joshuapl » January 16th, 2012, 3:04 pm


I have found some ancient answer in this forum concerning command-line options.
It said, that in order to automatically update a backup you should launch something like:

AceBackup.exe -update file.nsb

However, it does not work :(
Nothing happens, AceBackup is not even launched! And, as I have checked, the backup definitely is not updated.

What is the right command line option to update a backup project?
And, just to note - I'm searching for this because "schedule a backup" does not work - I've tried all the options: "when system starts", "while user log in" and specific hour/minute...

Anyone succeeded here?

Hello joshuapl!

A possible cause might be your use of incorrect settings for the backup items. However, I cannot see the problem’s cause without having further details. So could you please try to reproduce the problem and provide me with details? Thank you
Best regards,
