Custom pre and post backup scripts?

I have a proprietary application I need to back up, which the recommendation is to stop, do the backup, then restart. Is there a way to easily create a custom pre-backup and post-backup script?

Or even just a one line command? I’m only wanting to run an existing init script once before starting, and again when finished.

Edit: Should say it’s running on Linux and snapshots aren’t an option due to the way the system is set up.

Hello there,

it is already implemented as noted in the manuel: here.

Just create a file with the appropriate name (e.g. prefilebackup.bat) and it will be called when starting a file backup.

Awesome - Not sure how I missed that when I went looking. Just set it up and it does what I need.
