Hi,

What is different on your computer when the backup does not run?

Nothing as far as I'm aware, I'm always in bed at the time.

But last night Windows task Scheduler shows the backup task was run successfully, but there is no log in B4A for last night!

Hi,

Is there any user logged on at the scheduled time?
Do you have the same problem if you schedule the job to run when you are in front of the computer?
What if you manually run the backup?

Always, but not the administrator account that ran the backup last night that wasn't logged.

[quote]Do you have the same problem if you schedule the job to run when you are in front of the computer?[/quote]

I never know from day to day when that will be.

[quote]What if you manually run the backup?[/quote]

Manually ran the schduled backup for Task Sceduler and nothing shows in B4A history despite-

Hi,

Please try the latest version of Backup4all 5.1.541.
Do you still have the problem?

A manual run from task scheduler just now ran OK... will have to keep an eye open.
