Overview tab

On this tab you may see daily overview of jobs’ activity. You may select any day using the calendar in the Scheduling overview section (i.e. the upper part of the window). The chart next to calendar shows the past or scheduled behavior of jobs during the selected day. The red color indicates the period for which the jobs are scheduled. The vertical brown lines mark the exact time when the job starts running.

The period for database backups is marked in light blue. Jobs are stopped during this backup time and are resumed afterwards.

All activities taken by jobs are listed in the lower pane, in the Events section. You may see there the date and time of each job’s action, along with action’s description.



Archive tab

Archive tab is basically designed for manual archiving/restoring of files (Archive-Restore tab), browsing the archive (Archive view) as well as searching and exporting of files (Search & Export tab).



This view of the Archive tab is reserved for manual archiving/restoring of files/folders and Archive Manager context menu for folders is also accessible here. In the left pane you will see a list of all disks displayed. Simply click on the plus (+) sign to unfold the folder structure of the desired disk.

NOTE: Different icon with a red sign attached to it (ARCHIV~1_img19) denotes files that are not archivable in general or at the present moment; they are e.g. used by another program.
