Scheduled Jobs will not run

Postby avo-ken » Tue Mar 20, 2018 2:26 pm

All of a sudden all of my jobs stopped running automatically on 03/10/18. I can run the jobs manually. I went to the windows task scheduler to check on the tasks. When I click on ANY of the BU4A tasks I get the following message:

An error has occurred for the task...... One or more of the specified arguements are not valid.

I suspect that this is why the jobs are not running but I have no idea what to do to fix it.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks
Ken

Hi,

Please go to Control Panel->Task Scheduler, edit the task and go to Actions tab. Edit the action and make sure that "Start in" field does not contain quotes for the path.
If you still have the problem, please try to create a new scheduled task from Backup4all. Does it works?

The Start in field does not have quotes.

I decided to delete all the scheduled tasks via BU4A and recreated them.

I went back to the task scheduler to checked on them.
Highlighted the task, clicked properties, pressed OK and the same error message pops up.

The scheduled tasks are set to run tonight. I will see if they work.

It is working now after deleting my schedules and recreating them eventhough the windows task scheduler shows an error in configuration.

Sure wish this software was more reliable.
