So that you don't have to be an admin to use it, MASGAU has 2 different modes it can run in: Single User Mode and All Users Mode. Both of these modes have icons in the Start Menu, and you can switch between them using the button in the lower-left corner of the main window.
Single User Mode
This mode can be used by any user. It only scans the current user's folders and publicly readable system-wide folders. Depending on the specific setup, Single User Mode may or may not be able to restore all saves. If a permission problem occurs, MASGAU will prompt with a choice of elevating MASGAU with admin privileges to complete a restore.
All Users Mode
This mode can only be used by admins or a user with admin credentials. It scans all possible locations for every user on the system. Since it requires elevation, this mode can restore any save to any location.
Both of these modes will use the same settings, which are stored per-user.
This window appears when you double-click an archive,
or drag an archive onto the main window, or when you select an archive to restore in the main window.
After a game is added, MASGAU will ask if it's okay to submit a report on that game. If allowed, MASGAU will scan the computer for information related to the game and create a text report. It will display this report for editing, which is perfectly acceptable, and give the options of saving the report for later e-mailing to submissions@GameSave.Info or sending the report to that address automatically. Note: Submitted reports are uploaded to the GitHub server, and can be browsed at GameSave.Info's GitHub Report Repository
If monitoring is enabled for a game, MASGAU (as long as it's running) will watch that game for any new files and automatically archive them. This means that all your saves will be automatically archived without you having to go through all the hard gruelling work of pushing a backup button!
There's a red icon in the notification tray that doesn't really do anything itself, but if you click it the main window will dissapear, even the task bar icon, almost as if it's living inside the tiny red icon! Click it again and the window will appear again! So if you decide to leave MASGAU running to monitor your games, you can make it be practically invisible! The icon will pop up tiny message baloons if MASGAU has anything important to tell you. If you have MASGAU living in the icon when you exit it, or log off your computer, when it starts up again it will still be living in the icon.
