The Job Assistant provides options for scheduling program functions to be run automatically. You can, for example, plan to have your data drives imaged once a week.
- You will be forwarded to the corresponding activity window for your selected job via Start/Jobs & reports, which lists all jobs and reports created in O&O DiskImage. With a double click you can see the corresponding report or edit the job.
- You can create a new job schedule by clicking the Add as job symbol after selecting the drive or a folder in the activity window.
Note: In order to execute jobs on a regular basis, the starting conditions (e.g., source drive, images, or target drives) have to be the same. If you make changes to a drive's name, the storage location of the image, or on the layout of a target drive, the job may no longer be executed successfully.
Example: If you've created a job for incremental imaging, you need to enter where you saved all the previous images serving as a basis for the new incremental image. If you've moved the "base image" to another storage location, you'll need to enter the new storage location in the Job Assistant: otherwise the new path will not be found and the job cannot be run successfully.
Note: The tabs for Scheduling and Notification are not available in the Job Assistant when starting from the O&O DIskImage bootable medium.
