Can Comodo Backup V1.X shut my PC down after it has finished a backup job?
Yes, with an “if”, no with a “but”.
Comodo Backup V1.X has no direct means of shutting a PC down after a backup job has finished, but it does have the function of running an application after the job has completed. If you are running Windows XP, there is a little known application called SHUTDOWN.EXE which will, funnily enough, shut the PC down, if invoked with the “-s” parameter.
To use this function, double click on a backup job and then click on the EXTERNAL TASK tab. Select “To run after end of backup” and enter (without the quotes)
If you are using Comodo Backup V1.X to backup a remote PC across a LAN, you can shut down the remote PC using the same method, but invoking shutdown with the following parameters
" shutdown -s -m //computername"
Please note, these instructions apply to the English language version of Windows. The location and name of the shutdown utility may vary in other language versions.
