Backup & Recovery 2010 Free Windows XP Pro SP-3 While walking through the wizard (several times) and looking at File -> Settings, I have not found a means of setting priority on the backup job. While I may schedule the backup job to start off-hours, it could still be running when I return to my computer (which could be at any time). I still want my computer to be responsive and usable to me, not impacted with a normal-priority job that is sucking up the CPU or generating so much data bus traffic that my computer is not usable to me. I have found no setting for priority (to lower it). When the backup job starts at its scheduled time, there are no other programs running (except for the startup programs). The computer will be quiescent at that time so even a low-priority process will get full use of the CPU. A normal-priority process, if still running, could impact the usability of my computer if the process is still running when I return to using my computer. A low-priority process would get forced to surrender the CPU when normal-priority processes are loaded when I start to use my computer again. Is there no priority control for backup jobs in B&R2012free? Do I have to resort to editing the scheduled backup event in Task Scheduler to use something like SysInternals' psexec.exe with its priority parameter to load the backup program with low priority?
