    I'm trying to setup an hourly backup with acronis true image home. Right now I have it set to daily but is there a way to make it hourly, I didn't see the option.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    It 'appears' as if you can only do this by setting up 24 daily schedules, each one an hour apart.

    Yes you can accomplish this but it takes a bit of set up. You can use the Windows XP task scheduler and set it for multiple schedules and then set it to repeat every x many minutes. These are advanced settings in the Win Task Scheduler.

    To use the Win Task Scheudle for ATi you have to run the ATI serivce and call scheduled task file for a specifiy ATI task, which is default located in

    "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Acronis\TrueImage\TrueImageService.exe" /script:"C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Acronis\TrueImage\Scripts\[filename].tib.tis


    You can find the name of the ATI task file by creating the scheduled task and setting it for run manually in ATI. Then go to the directdory shown above and see what the filename is.

    sh

    Thanks I setup the Win Task Schedular with that path and found the filename and now it backs up hourly.
