The Retrospect toolbar includes a stop button that makes it easy to stop all currently executing operations.
If Retrospect is set up with numerous scripts, including ProactiveAI Backup scripts, that run at all times of the day and night, it can sometimes be difficult to manage your scripts and Backup Sets, since Retrospect starts executing the scripts soon after it is launched.
When Retrospect launches and a script is about to run, a countdown dialog displays.
Click Stop, then confirm your selection to temporarily stop all execution activity. If you are unable click Stop before the countdown expires, you can click the Stop all execution activity button in the Retrospect toolbar to achieve the same effect.
ProactiveAI Backup is stopped and scripts are not allowed to start until you click the button in the Retrospect toolbar again. When you click the button again, ProactiveAI Backup starts and Retrospect allows scheduled and waiting scripts to execute.
Clicking Stop also turns off and disables the Automatically launch Retrospect preference until the button is clicked again. See Startup Preferences for more information.
Once you click the Stop button it remains selected even if you exit and relaunch Retrospect. When all execution activity is stopped, the Retrospect icon in the system tray of your Windows taskbar will flash until you click the Stop all execution activity button in the Retrospect toolbar.
