When backing up a mobile Android device to a PC, does the "Continuous" functionality operate automatically?  (And only when connected to the same wifi network?)

Hello coyote,

Continuous backup means the data on your mobile device will be backed up automatically without any user interaction. 

On Android devices, the backup task will start every 6 hours.

On iOS, you'll also need to insure the application is either open or is running in background. Backups will not run, if the application is closed. Push notifications should be enabled. 

The app will try to back up whenever possible, if something prevents backup job from starting (e.g. network not available, app is closed on iOS) - the next start will be delayed for another 6 hours. 

Thank you,

Note that the backup will only occur if the phone connects with the pc, through ati. This is an iffy thing at best.
