Backup Schedule

To change how often Arq Cloud Backup backs up your files:

  1. Open the Arq Cloud Backup app
  2. Click the Settings… button
  3. In the Schedule tab, choose hourly, daily (choose the hour) or manually.

You can also prevent Arq Cloud Backup from backing up while your computer is on battery power, and you can block your computer from sleeping while Arq Cloud Backup is backing up.

Click Save Changes to save your changes.

Manual Backup

If you’ve chosen manual (or if you don’t want to wait for the next scheduled backup) you can click the “Start Backup” button in the main window. If Arq Cloud Backup is currently backing up, the button changes to “Stop Backup”.
