I downloaded your software yesterday and created a schedule to run everyday at 2:00 am. I ran a manual backup to test the software and everything ran fine. I come in this morning expecting the software to have ran last night at 2:00am and nothing happened. The main screen even shows "Next Scheduled Backup: 12/29/2011 2:00:00 AM". I ran another manual backup this morning and now it says "Next scheduled backup: 12/30/2011 2:00:00 AM". Why would the backup not run?

Hi,


Which scheduler type you used? The Windows Scheduler or the Built-in scheduler?

I am using the built-in scheduler.


When I first setup the software, I tried to use the Windows scheduler option. But I could not get the setup to work, I think because I do not have a password on my Windows account.

Hi,


Is there any user logged on at the scheduler start time?

Hi


I am a single user and my computer is switched on at the scheduled time.


The only backup that has run to date was the one performed when I started the programme.


Not a single scheduled backup has run.


I use Windows XP (does not have a scheduled back-up function that I could find) and requested the use of the FBackup scheduled option


Any advice please?

Hi,


Please go to Start->Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Task Scheduler.

Can you create a scheduled task to start FBackup?

Does it run?
