I have recently downloaded and installed Fbackup 4.4 Build 196 on a *new* HP Pavilion p3624uk single-user PC running Windows 7. I DO NOT switch the PC off at night - but have occasionally rebooted the PC during the day. The power options are set to default which puts the PC to sleep after a period of inactivity. I do not have to log in again when the PC returns from sleep. My user account has administrator privileges and is permanently logged in.
Fbackup looks great and works fine if I kick off backups manually, but I have had no success in getting the internal scheduler to work. I have created a daily backup in mirror mode, set to execute at 4am each day. The scheduler properties are all set to default, with the exception that I have set the Power Management option to wake the computer from sleep to run the backup. I have checked the processes that are running in Task Manager and the Fbackup scheduler fbaSched.exe is running (as is the Windows 7 task scheduler service) . I have had a look in the Fbackup log and the scheduled backup job did not start.
I have had a quick read through other threads on problems with scheduling backs but cannot find anything that seems to help (there is nothing illuminating in schedglu.txt).
Summarising, I have a standard install of the latest version of Fbackup on an almost new PC. I have created a daily backup job and scheduled it using Fbackups internal scheduler to run at 4am each day. It doesn't run.
Where do I go from here? Any thoughts?
