CloudBerry S3 Backup is a powerful Windows backup and restore that automate backup and restore processes to Amazon S3 cloud storage. With CloudBerry Backup GUI you can schedule backup plan to run at most every day at specified time. For most of the businesses and home users this is a reasonable default. However, sometimes you might need to schedule backup plan to run more frequently. Currently, you can’t do that using the console, but this is exactly the case where our command line interface and Windows Task Scheduler will help

Command Line Interface

CloudBerry Backup command line interface is implemented by a little tool called cbb.exe

To try it out run windows console cmd.exe. Make sure you change your current folder to CloudBerry Backup product installation folder by default at C:\Program Files\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Online Backup\


Run cbb ? to get some basic help


Run cbb –l to get the list of existing backup plans. It is necessary to run this command to get the plan ID. You will use it in the future to schedule the plan. There are 10 plans in my system. You can quickly spot a plan you want to schedule by looking at the plan names.


To run a given backup plan you can use CloudBerry Backup console executable with the plan ID as a command line argument. You should replace {Plan ID} with the ID you found using cbb – l command.

C:\Program Files\CloudBerryLab\CloudBerry Online Backup>“CloudBerry Online Backup Service.exe” {Plan ID}


Windows Task Scheduler

To create a Windows Task go to Control Panel | Scheduled Tasks and click Add Scheduled Task. Copy the command above with the plan ID into the Run field.


Now you can take advantage of all advanced scheduling options available for Windows Task:



Even though CloudBerry Backup doesn’t provide very flexible scheduling options through CloudBerry Backup console you can always use command line interface and Windows Task Scheduler to make your schedule run according to your needs.

CloudBerry Backup command line interface is capable of doing much more than simply listing and scheduling plans. You can create plans, configure various settings, run backup and restore operations. To learn more about it please refer to the online documentation.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
