Running backups under a different user account

When scheduling a backup task in Windows, you must specify a valid user id on the operating system.

The following steps demonstrate how to run a backup task using the built-in SYSTEM account on Windows.

  • Start Syncrify Client
  • Schedule a task using Syncrify Client
  • When Windows prompts you to specify a user id and password, use NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM as the login ID

  • Leave the password field blank when using the SYSTEM account.
  • Click OK all the way
That should be it. Now even if Syncrify Client is run under the "SYSTEM" account, it will know the path where profile information is stored.
