This sections briefly describes the most important interface changes in AnyFileBackup version 4. Interface in version 4 has been completely rebuilt to satisfy our most demanding users. We hope that you find it easy to understand and convenient to use. Please contact us with any suggestions and questions about the interface.
The main window, apart from the Buttons bar (see below), has not changed much from version 3.
This is a self-explanatory comparison between AnyFileBackup v.3 (top) and v.4 (bottom) button bars:
Task properties have changed more than anything else since version 3. In this section you can read a very brief overview of changes made to Task Properties. Detailed information about Task Properties window can be found in the dedicated section of this help.
Navigation tree has remained essentially the same. It can be used to quickly switch between tasks, program and extension settings.
Task Scenario is a new feature of AnyFileBackup v.4. It incorporates Source, Operations, Targets and Actions, etc sections of version 3 task settings. It has become one single list of operations that task performs making it easy and user-friendly to configure any task.
Almost every action in the Task Scenario has its own unique properties. These properties now are presented in table-style interface making it easy to navigate through hundreds of settings. Most settings are split into relevant sections (displayed in bold font).
We did our best to remove as much third-level windows as possible leaving only those which are rarely used and non-essential.
Program Settings have not really change since version 3. They now also displayed table-style interface and divided into sections but nothing else really changed.
This is the only new section in Program Settings. It is dedicated specifically to AnyFileBackup mode of operation: as an ordinary Windows application or as a Windows system service. You can read more about Task Processor in the dedicated section of this help.
