Our church has a laptop used by several different users under Windows 10. Each user has his/her own account and own login.
AIS Backup is installed on the laptop for all users and I have backed up the laptop to an external 2.5 inch drive.
I would now like to set this machine up for each user to be able to back up his or her own files to this external drive when they have finished using the laptop. However my fellow W10 administrator's account shows no backup job exists so far in AIS -- presumably that is because it was I that made it and so it does not show on her account.
Is there some way to set AIS up for all users to see and to use the same external backup - each then backs up all changed files (including and especially their own)? Or do we need 4 or 5 different backup jobs (one per user!)?
I wondered about setting it to open the backup job from the external drive but I am not how to arrange that, nor am I sure whether AIS and Windows allows this.
Thanks for your help.

This is a little tricky if the accounts are not administrator accounts, which I guess is likely.

The backup jobs are stored in one folder for the PC and not the account.

I would set up a backup job under each user account to backup the documents, ensuring that the ‘Backup NTFS Security Settings’ is not selected (it is by default), otherwise the backup will need admin rights to run.

To make things easier for the user you could set-up a desktop shortcut for their backup job. Manage Backup / Create Shortcut for this backup job / OK / check ‘Create a desktop shortcut’, choose an icon and click OK

Many thanks, Barry. I suspected something along those lines might turn out to be the answer but your explanation of how to set it up is invaluable.
