Command Files with File & Folder Backups

I'm trying to setup a "Triggered" File & Folder backup job that backs up a single file when a particular application is run. Problem is, I need the backup to run AFTER the application terminates, not while it is running. Was going to use a "Pre" script to monitor the application by using the Tasklist command in a loop until the application terminates, but then discovered that you can't specify Command Files for File & Folder backups.

Anyone have an idea how I can achieve this?

Hi TRaj - I will put in an "suggestion" for enhancement to allow triggered events to include Pre/Post scripts as I believe this would be useful to many people.
