    Remember when I bought MR7 a year ago?


    Well I finally installed it and from what I can gather it appears I have it set up to run in 'Incremental Forever' mode. It's incrementally belching my C and D drives out 8am every day onto my Seagate 4TB external drive, so that's nice. It takes only a few minutes.

    I turn my PC off every night, turn it on around 7am every morning. I'm going on a short vaycay this week for 3 to 4 days & was wondering if there's a way my PC can wake itself up for Reflect to do its thing every day at 8am & then shut off. I think computers were doing that in the 1950s so I put 2 & 2 together.

    And no I can't code so just looking for the simple things.

    A question: is anyone else going to be using the computer while you are gone or is it set to automatically download something? If not and nothing changing why not just do an orderly shutdown and let MR catch up when you get back?

    Nobody else is using my pooter and nothing else is happening on it except for its daily MR morning run. So I can just leave the PC off for a few days & come back & let it resume its routine? I've never used MR before so I didn't know how it would react in that circumstance. Thank you.

    There should be no problem leaving computer off while gone. If the computer does nothing new MR won't care until things get started up again.
