Scheduled Backup does not run

Post by sghalliday »

I have ver 8 setup to backup based on tags. It does several jobs per tag. It does not run at the scheduled time, but will run fine if I start the backup manually.

I checked in the log files and there is no log for the scheduled time

I looked in the Task Scheduler and found the jobs.

I edited one of the jobs and of course re-entered my login password. However, the scheduler still shows the old job.

Could this be something to do with the fact that I restored everything from a before the system had a drive failure?

I looked around for the task file and found an xml file in C:\Users\steve\AppData\Local\Temp\Softland\Backup4all 8, but it does not have today's date so it is not reflecting the change I made. Obviously I am not looking at the right place - OR Backup4all is not saving the scheduled tasks correctly.

Any ideas?

Please try to recreate the scheduled task in Backup4all.
If that works, you can remove the old scheduled task.
