How does this work if I schedule it, does it create a task on its own and auto-starts itself?

Sorry, noticed there is a checkbox: start as Windows Service but its not selectable. How come? I already tried running it as an administrator.

The checkbox is disabled because the Duplicacy service has not been installed. To install Duplicacy as a service, either run the installer as administrator and install for all users, or run the Duplicacy executable with --install option.

Is there a reason this would not be a default option? For servers, especially.

Service as the default option may be more suitable for a disk-level backup tool. Duplicacy is a file-level backup tool so I guess many users want it to run in the normal mode to back up a directory, not the entire disk.
That being said, I may be wrong and if more users request it I'll be happy to make the change.
