Update backup interval and system resources

Update backup interval

To update the backup interval

  1. Start inSync.
  2. On the left navigational panel, click Preferences.
  3. Under the Backup Preferences tab, in the Backup interval list, click the frequency of scheduled backups from your laptop.

Update network bandwidth

During backups or syncs, data is transferred from the devices to the inSync storage. These data transfers consume bandwidth.

Note:
  • inSync requires a minimum bandwidth of 16 Kbps for backups over WAN. If you
    set the bandwidth as a percentage value, ensure that the maximum WAN bandwidth is
    not less than 16 Kbps.
  • inSync administrator defines the bandwidth inSync can utilize for backups. inSync uses the lesser of the values configured by you and the administrator for backup.

To update the network bandwidth utilization

  1. Start inSync.
  2. On the left navigation panel, click Preferences.
  3. Under the Backup Preferences tab, in the Bandwidth used list, click the network bandwidth that your laptop can consume while backing up data.

Update the CPU priority

We recommend that you set CPU priority to an optimal value. Assigning a higher CPU priority may affect the performance of other applications on your laptop. Assigning a lower CPU priority might increase the time required for backup.

To update the CPU priority

  1. Start inSync.
  2. On the left navigation panel, click Preferences.
  3. Under the Backup Preferences tab, in the CPU priority list, click the priority that you want to assign to inSync on your laptop.
  4. Click Ok on the confirmation message.
Note: The first backup is a full backup and requires the most processing power. All subsequent backups are incremental and require low processing power. We recommend that for a full backup, you select high CPU priority. Thereafter, change the CPU priority to normal.

Automatically pause backups according to the laptop battery percentage level

You can configure inSync to automatically pause backups when the battery of your laptop reaches the percentage level that you define.

To configure inSync to automatically pause backups according to your laptop battery percentage level

  1. Start inSync.
  2. On the left navigation pane, click Preferences.
  3. Under the Backup Preferences tab, in the Pause if battery is below list, click the battery percentage level which when reached, inSync must pause the backup operation. A confirmation message appears.
  4. Click Ok.
