#79152 Progress and Confirmation dialog for backups

Posted by wxman on 11 April 2016 - 04:48 PM in RootsMagic Wish List

Yes, I think a progress bar would be helpful. There is no way to know if the backup is done, or if the program has locked up.



#79123 Progress and Confirmation dialog for backups

I thought I saw that "flash" once. It really needs to be something that the user has to click so we know it finished the backup. A better thing would be to also include a progress bar.




#79114 Progress and Confirmation dialog for backups

Posted by wxman on 10 April 2016 - 07:57 AM in RootsMagic Wish List

When you run a manual backup of a large tree (File>Backup), including media, no dialog box shows the progress of the backup while it runs. I have a fairly fast computer, and it took long enough that I first thought the program froze. I also saw that it didn't even give me a "backup completed" dialog box when it was done.
If somebody has a older, slower system, with loads of large media files, a backup could take a while. It could get to the point that you wonder if the program crashed and locked up. That's where the confirmation, or progress is needed.
