Backup via Command Line Window

Author: Optuma Team Last updated: Apr 1, 2020 05:26


Depending on the size and number of files you have, the automated backups can take a while to run during the Optuma startup process (set to once a week by default).

One way to avoid this issue is to setup backups to run automatically using the Windows Task Scheduler at a time you aren’t using Optuma.

For information on how to use this component of Windows please refer to the following Microsoft Support Document.

optuma.exe -backup

This will trigger the backup process to run.

You can also run this process manually via the Command Line Window (cmd):
