Pre-/Post-command is a useful feature for those who need to run some application or execute commands (or batch file) before/after backup.

The Pre-command allows executing commands such as deleting images or launching applications before the backup.
 
The Post-command can execute commands to start/stop certain Windows processes or other applications after the backup.
 
Here is an example for how to set the shutdown command after the backup.

1. Click Options and select Custom Commands.  

 
2. Click Edit with Post-command and input ‘shudown’ in the command box. Then click OK to save the change. EaseUS Todo Backup will execute the command and shut down your computer automatically after the backup completes.

The command needs some parameters, '/s' to Shutdown the computer. Sometimes '/f' is needed to force running applications to close without forewarning users.
 
3. If the command is a batch file, click Browse... and navigate to the batch file.

Note:
1. Don't set to execute interactive command, for EaseUS Todo Backup will let it run in background. Unless you kill the command process in Windows Task Manager, the application will never start the backup.
2. If you want to execute a batch file or run an application in Command, make sure you have specified the work path of it.
