Hello  @Mohamed Guinidy,

Welcome!

If the Backup is “scheduled” a password is necessary, bc, KTS backup software needs “permission” from file system to access files, therefore, you must allocate a password to the Windows User account.

If the Backup is “on demand”, no password is required. 

Thank you.

An account is required to get access to files during backup. To create backup tasks, an account with a password is required.

When working with backup tasks, please note the following:

  • If you create a scheduled backup task, you need to specify the data of your account on this computer.
  • If you create an on-demand backup task, you do not need to specify the data of your account on this computer.
  • If you change an on-demand task to a scheduled task, you need to specify the data of your account on this computer.
