How do I set up a simple preset to test OCB?

Simple presets are always simple to set up :-) Here is a step-by step guide. Don't forget, this is a simple preset, it doesn't show all the power of OCB.

  1. Being in the main OCB window, click right mouse button on any line of the Preset Table (all lines are all empty if you've just installed OCB).
  2. In the context menu click "Add new" - you will see a new Preset Configuration Window, General tab.
  3. Enter a preset name, for example"Demo Preset".
  4. Enter an archive file name. An archive file with this name will be created each time you run this preset.
  5. Select preferred compression method - Store means faster processing but larger archive file; Best means slower processing but smaller archive file.
  6. Switch to Actions tab.
  7. Check "Write archives to a folder", click the button nearby and select a folder to store your backup archives.
  8. Switch to File Lists tab.
  9. Press "Explorer" button. If the new Explorer window filled the whole screen, resize it so that you could partially see OCB include and exclude lists. Now follow this animated demo:

    1) Select required files and folders in Explorer, click left mouse button and without releasing it drag them to OCB include list.
    2) Release left mouse button and you will see that Explorer window went to background and the dragged files were added to the include list.
    3) Go to step 1 to add other files and folders if needed. Do not add subfolders - they will be processed automatically.
  10. Press OK button, your simple preset is ready to use. Doubleclick it in the Preset Table to see how it works.
