To apply advanced settings, you often need to restart the Backup FP (the internal process associated with Backup Manager).
The service will not restart itself if stopped, so will need to be manually restarted. However, it will start up as normal after a device reboot as long as it has not been disabled.
Here is how to restart the Backup FP on Windows:
- Open the Start menu
- Start the Services Console by typing
Servicesinto the search menu, or
services.mscin the Run program
- Scroll until you find the Backup Service Controller service
- Right-click and choose Restart
You may also stop the service by following the above instructions, but selecting Stop in step 4
On Linux, start a terminal emulator and run the following command:
On macOS, start the Terminal and run the following commands:
sudo launchctl unload -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.cloudbackup.BackupFP.plist sudo launchctl load -w /Library/LaunchDaemons/com.cloudbackup.BackupFP.plist
