Can FBackup wake Windows 10 for scheduled backups?

I currently run my FBackup jobs overnight on my Windows 10 PC, but would like to leave my PC in sleep mode overnight when the backups are not running. Is it possible for Fbackup to wake the PC from sleep when it needs to execute a scheduled backup, then put the PC back to sleep when the backup jobs ...

Job keeps repeating endlessly after upgrade to v9

I recently migrated from v8.9 to 9.0 (build 199) - free edition. Ever since the upgrade one of my scheduled jobs keeps endlessly repeating 24/7. It's scheduled to run at 02:00 every day, but actually keeps completing then restarting all day long until I cancel it. Any idea why this might be happenin...

Re: "Access denied" errors after upgrade from v8.9 to 9.0

I just tried re-creating one of the jobs manually in v9.0. When I try to run it manually it gets added to the "Running" list but never executes. We are also corresponding via a separate thread in the Troubleshooting forum (sorry - I put this message in the wrong forum) so will follow up there from n...

Re: No backups running after upgrading from v8.9 to 9.0

No I didn't get any error/warning messages during the upgrade - it all appeared to go smoothly. If I try to run a job manually it gets added to the "Running" list, but the job never starts. After attempting to run it manually in this way the option to run it again becomes disabled (I am only able to...

No backups running after upgrading from v8.9 to 9.0

I was prompted to upgrade FBackup (free edition) from v8.9 to v9.0 a couple of days ago. I did the upgrade, and imported all of my backups from v8.9. When the scheduled backups ran on the first night, from a Windows 10 machine to various drives on an Ubuntu file server, all of the jobs failed with a...

Re: "Access denied" errors after upgrade from v8.9 to 9.0

...and now a day later I've noticed that none of my daily scheduled backups ran last night. I then tried running some of them manually, and couldn't get any of them to start. So upgrading from 8.9 to 9.0 has basically completely trashed my backup regime.

Re: Destination error (code 5). Access is denied.

Those instructions don't seem to be consistent with the UI that I am seeing. If I select the "Network" option in the New Backup Wizard I am presented with 3 fields: -Folder (a textbox), with a Browse button beside it. If I click the Browse button it only shows network destinations (not drive letters...

Re: Destination error (code 5). Access is denied.

I do have the share mapped to a drive letter, but the dropdown list for destination when I select "Local Disk" only shows genuinely local devices, and I am unable to enter a drive letter anywhere if I select "Network" as the destination.

Re: Destination error (code 5). Access is denied.

Yes the backup is scheduled, and yes I get the same problem if I run the job manually. I also get the same problem if I run FBackup as an administrator (manually).
