How automatic backup works
SmartKeeper is capable of performing the automatic backup process
whether your device is in use (ON) or in suspension (OFF).
When the device is ON
If a low battery status occurs while you are using the device, this message
appears, "Battery low! Back up the current system status?"
Backing up the "current system status" means that the entire
system and all the data in the system main memory are saved as
is to the ASUSBKUP.SAV file. For example, you are editing an
Excel file when a battery low status occurs and you confirmed to
back up. When you restore the system status from the
ASUSBKUP.SAV file, you will see exactly the same screen,
settings, and system configuration as earlier backed up.
To verify if the CF card, or the SD card, is usable for system
backup, perform a Manual backup first. See the section "To
use manual backup" on page 4-44.
