  5. Specify your preferred backup settings, and click the Next button. Here are the settings which you can set:
    • Run on Schedule.
    • Security Options: You can change it to either Use Polarbackup internal encryption password, or to Use your own password.
    • Enable/disable the Bandwidth Throttling option.
    • Hybrid+

When you are done, Polarbackup software will be uploading your selected data, and you can access this data by logging into your Polarbackup online account.

Polarbackup should be installed on administrator user account, not on a Standard one.
Logging out from the administrator user account where Polarbackup desktop software is installed will cause the backup to stop. However, Polarbackup will resume the backup when this administrator user logs back into the user account.
