Hi all,

the last days Seti@Home was down, I thought about a 'Backup Project'. How can I set it up? It should only run, when Seti has no WU.
I cannot find any preferences to set a project like that.

Thank you,
Schultze

Set the Resource share for the Backup Project to 0 (zero)
If the Backup Project do not accept 0 (zero) set the Resource share to 0.01

I don't know what it is in German but in English it is on the project's account page, seti@home preferences. Just find the preferences for whatever project you want to run as back up.

BTW, Resource share is a double. You can set the resource share to a very small number (0.0000000001) will only give the project one download every few years under normal circumstances.

NOTE that any task downloaded from a very low resource share project will almost certainly run in High Priority till completion.
