Restarting the internal backup process

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.

Windows instructions

Here is how to restart the Backup FP on Windows:

  1. Open the Start menu
  2. Start the Services Console by typing Services into the search menu, or services.msc in the Run program
  3. Scroll until you find the Backup Service Controller service
  4. Right-click and choose Restart

Linux instructions

On Linux, start a terminal emulator and run the following command:

/etc/init.d/ProcessController restart

macOS instructions

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
