inSync On-premise 5.4 Administrator Guide
On-premise Editions: File:/tick.png Private Cloud File:/tick.png Enterprise File:/tick.png Professional


As an administrator, you can enforce backup from a laptop when a user is shutting it down or is logging off. In such cases, the laptop shuts down or system logs the user out only after backup is complete.

Note: You can enforce backups through profiles. You cannot do this on an individual user level.


To enforce backup for user devices before log off or shutdown

  1. On the inSync Master Management Console menu bar, click Manage > Profiles.
  2. Click the link of the profile for which you want to enforce backup for user devices before log off or shutdown.
  3. Click the Laptop Backup Schedule tab.
  4. In the Laptop Backup Schedule area, click Edit. The Edit Profile​ window appears.
  5. Select the Backup at logoff / shutdown check box.
  6. Click Save.
