Re: OneDrive link broken?

Funnily enough, after having not tried onedrive since the post, I tried it again last night. It worked - the PC was shut down (shuts down on success) and the log files indicated success!). This is with V7.4 build 461. I can only assume something changed in the build. However, when i opened Backup4al...

Re: Backup4all can't shut down PC via scheduled task

I had exactly the same problem last year. You can see the thread under the title 'Btray and Shutdown'.

In the end i used a workaround. I created a 'shutdown.bat' and run that.

My shutdown.bat is a simple text file with one line: shutdown -s -f -t 15 -c "shutting down"

It works!

Re: OneDrive and Google Drive link broken?

An update: Overnight I backed up to Goggle Drive. Having set-up the Goggle Drive account via 'File --> Options --> online destinations'. Running the backup seemed fine. This morning I noticed that the PC hadn't shut down (as it should do upon the successful completion of a backup) and i was being pr...

OneDrive link broken?

Hi, have successfully in the past backed up to OneDrive without an issue - most recently 22nd July. However, I recently came back from an extended holiday and find that the onedrive backup is no longer working and i wonder if an upgrade has broken it. I'm currently running Backup4all Professional 7....

Re: OneDrive and BackupMaxSpace / disk space

Perfect. Thanks. as it happens I'd just worked that out myself!! For others let me explain the nuance: You get two options: (i) limit the back size to a % of the destination; and (ii) to a specific size. The default is 80% of the destination size *unless* you choose a remote location. If you are bac...

Re: Btray and Shutdown - workaround

Thought people may be interested in my workaround for this.

I create a 'shutdown.bat' and run that.

My shutdown.bat is a simple text file with one line: shutdown -s -f -t 15 -c "shutting down"

OneDrive and BackupMaxSpace / disk space

Hello all, I'm wondering whether v7.0.206 has broken something with OneDrive. I was successfully backing up with OneDrive. I'm now getting a 'Not enough backup free space to make incremental backup' error. I don't get this when backing up to local ftp. Note: I alternative between local ftp and oneDr...

Re: Btray and Shutdown

Nope. BTW: now running v7.0.206 So what i did (and understood from your suggestion) was to create a entirely new backup job in the new v7 and run that (as administrator). Backup successful, laptop not shutdown, no error msg and no obvious attempt to initiate a shutdown. AS per the previous attempts ...

Re: Btray and Shutdown

OK - updated to 7.0.199. Ran the backup job and nothing! Backup job was successful. No obvious attempt to shutdown the PC - certainly no error.

NB: the 'Show Tray icon' option is enabled. The task manager shows 'Backup4all - Shutdown Scheduler' as running.

Any other ideas please?
