  1. From the Windows Start menu, choose Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel dialog, double-click Scheduled Tasks.

    Note: If your Control Panel displays in Category View, click the Switch to Classic View link to see the Scheduled Tasks icon.

  3. The task appears in the following format:


  4. Right-click the task and choose Properties from the context menu.
  5. Click the Task tab of the dialog that opens. The database that will be backed up appears in the Run field.
  6. You can use the Task, Schedule, Settings, and Security tabs to control the settings for the scheduled tasks.

    Do not rename the task, or you will lose the ability to edit the task through Practice CS.

  7. When finished, click OK to close the dialog.
