a) Navigate to Start -> Program Files -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Scheduled Tasks
b) Right Click on the BACKmeUP icon
c) On the task tab, set the Windows Account password.

Locally based backup are quick for backup and restores and BACKmeUP software is able to do that as well through its Local Backup function. However local backup without having redundant hard drives and offsite storage only provides a STORAGE service and NOT a true BACKUP service. You may be able to store your data in the NAS but if anything were to happen locally to the data (disaster, media corruption, etc.); you will not be able to retrieve the data as compared to BACKmeUP . For a backup to be classified as satisfactory and sufficient backup, the facility must be able to provide automatic backup, offsite storage and able to keep a fully versioned history of files in the backup.
You can check and verify that your data is backed up by: –
Every time you perform a backup, you will receive an email notification from the BACKmeUP server of the backup done.

Click Next. In the next screen, you will have the Explorer Tree-View and you are able to access and view the files you have uploaded in their respective folder locations.
Select the “Storage View” tab. Click on the “Refresh data from server” at the right side of the application window. This will obtain the list of files from the server. You will now have the Explorer Tree-View and you are able to access and view the files you have uploaded in their respective folder locations.
