Pre-backup and post-backup commands give customers a lot more flexibility when deploying the Ahsay backup solution to different environments or when there are changes to the existing environment. This option enables the customer to define command(s) or a script such as a .bat file on Windows or a .sh file on Linux/FreeBSD, which Ahsay will automatically execute before and or after the backup job.
