A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named BackupManager.exe. The setup package generally installs about 65 files and is usually about 578.04 KB (591,916 bytes). The installed file Update.exe is the auto-update component of the program which is designed to check for software updates and notify and apply them when new versions are discovered.

It wants me to use 4DVD's .... seriously to back up my computer and everytime I try to back up ... always fails. This has happend to me on several Acer systems. Its a complete waste of time and resources. If you really want to back up use dropbox and google drive and then do a clean install of Windows.
