    It means all directories you have added to BLBackup

    When you say ‘’all directories’’ what does that mean exactly? all hs directories ? Or all the directories on the hard drive?

    The basic function of the plugin is to backup whatever directories you enter into the plugin

    Once you have the directories entered into the plugin, you can then create events to backup those directories or you can do what I do and just have one event that backs up all directories every night and saves multiple days worth of backups. You can specify how many to keep for each directory.

    In the event, if you specify the directory to backup then only that directory will be backed up. If you select None for directory then it will backup all directories
    In the event action you can override the destination. If you leave the destination blank then it will use the destination from the options page

    I have attached what mine looks like

    I ended up going to Blade’s website and asking the question on his help desk. Blade is always good about responding quickly and he got me oriented. I love the app; it has worked flawlessly for almost a year.

    I have the same question. Mine is even simpler. Just one backup per week, to one location.

    Just like many plugins and features of Homeseer, there's always a whole bunch of people who know how to do it, but no one really gives a comprehensive explanation.

    Comprehensive Setup Instructions?

    Do comprehensive set up instructions exist for BLBackup? I am "trial and error" trying to understand the relationship between the several locations where info is to be entered for target directory, destination directory and backup type. Is a virtual device and device number necessary? If I set up events to run on Monday and Thursday, do I set up the same "frequency" in the BL plug in? The help files are not very helpful and I have not yet identified a complete thread.

    All I want to do is backup my HS3 directory twice a week: on Monday to C drive and Thursday to N drive. I want a full directory created and I want a confirmation email.
