I have the same problem. All looks normal except the backup date does not change but next backup increments for each scheduled.

Please let me know what you find?
Thanks!

Hi,
Do you have the latest version of FBackup 4.6.253 ?

During our evaluation of the software we had the same issue - scheduled backups (using Windows Task Scheduler) were not working (Server 2008 R2). In our case it was because we run the task under a specific domain user account which did not have a profile on the server. We logged into the server under the specific user account and the scheduled backup started working. We believe this is because when the backup job runs, it appears to build the backup zip file under the user's profile. No profile = no way to build the backup file. HTH.

I am new to F-Backup but my problem is that I cant get backups to run using the windows scheduler when the user is not logged on. Can you email me the explicit instructions on how to do this properly. The task is created and says it runs, but nothing changes.

@Dij:
You can use the Built-in scheduler to create the scheduled task. Please note that will work only if there is an user logged on.
@ghopkins58:

Do you use the Windows scheduler or the Built-in scheduler?
