How it works / Advanced options

PhotoshopSaver checkes every 30 seconds for which application is currently active.
Not to interrupt your working, PhotoshopSaver doesn't backup your documents when you're drawing.
If you're doing other things - web surfing, watching movie, etc -, it tries to backup then.

If you're not using computer (idle) for 7 minutes, it tries to backup documents.

After you've started working, PhotoshopSaver doesn't backup anything within 10 minutes to prevent saving too often.

You can adjust these values in Advanced options menu.
