I have started using active backup, so far only one problem. What are you guys using to start win10 from sleep? I have tried a couple of things, but can't seem to get it right.

Thanks

What's the problem? That AB4B doesn't, or won't, bring the PC out of sleep/hibernation prior to a scheduled backup?

TBH I haven't thought about this. Instead I have the scheduled backups being activate by a schedule once per day and then when the PC uses the lock screen.


Welcome to the forum.

It will also allow win pc to sleep during backup.

Very discouraging. As well backups are not encrypted with the present release. Look at Veeam...
If your computer is in the standby mode at the time when the backup job must start, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows automatically wakes your computer from sleep. The wake-up feature lets you schedule your backup at night. At the defined time, Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows will wake up the computer and perform a scheduled task. If necessary, you can additionally instruct Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to bring the computer back to the standby mode or power off the computer after the backup is finished.

Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows wakes up the computer by default, unless the power saving settings on the computer prohibit this. If the wake up operation is not possible for some reason, the computer will remain in the standby mode, and the backup operation will not be performed. You can instruct Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows to resume missed backup in such situations.

Thanks for the reply, I'll take a look at veeam. I can always go back to my normal backup. Youtube'ers pushing AB4B Thought I'd try it. DS1815 running 24-7.

Script and screenshot examples from my main NAS that may help you:

Code:
synonet --wake 00:11:32:d2:aa:aa eth4;
synonet --wake 00:30:93:10:aa:aa eth4;
synonet --wake d0:81:7a:d9:aa:aa eth4;
synonet --wake 98:fa:9b:67:aa:aa eth4;


##eth 4 = LAN 5 = 10 GbE outgoing port##
##synonet --wake <MAC address of device to wake> eth<outgoing port eg LAN1 = eth0>##
