At the moment, the new version of Boxi does interact with the background 
service at all, apart from allowing you to generate and edit configuration 
files for it. There is no way in the user interface to start, stop or 
restart the service, or to tell it to sync or reload. I'm planning to add 
this once the interactive functionality (backup, restore, compare) is 
complete, but I'm still trying to figure out how to make it easy to use.

Cheers, Chris.
