HowTo: Run Uranium Backup as a service

There are situations where you need to run a backup software as a service. An office PC could be a good example: administrators don’t want people to mess with the backup settings and restrict the users permissions. Furthermore, backup sets have to work even if nobody is logged into the system. How could you do that? Simple, install a service.

Uranium Backup includes a service and the installation procedure is quite simple.

Now, let me show you how to get the job done.
