Prevent quitting

Quick question, is there a way to prevent the user from quitting Duplicati?


Admin account
User account

User account runs duplicati, and backup.

Can this be installed as an administrator level service so that users cannot quit the process?


You can install Duplicati as a service. Regular user normally cannot start or stop system processes.

As a plus, Duplicati won’t be executed twice if both users are logged on to the same machine.
One caveat is that Home directory has to be included by absolute path (C:\Users[user]) instead of environment variables (%USER% / %APPDATA%)


Disable autostartup on initial installation

Install Duplicati as a service

Use portable mode to prevent configuration loss on next Windows Update
