Local Admin Required for some reason

For some reason I need to be signed in as Local Admin to do a backup while the other two people who use ACT do not.


Does anyone have any idea why this is? Which settings should I look at to change this?

Re: Local Admin Required for some reason

Performing a backup does require admin rights on the local machine.  There may be a difference in the way your and the other users profiles are setup. You may need to create a new profile for yourself or modify yours to match the other users.
