I use Mirror
Yes the there are modified and new files every day
None of my backup jobs with FBackup run if I dont open the program first
Sorry about the delay in replying - I've been away for a week.
I'm running full backup. Strangely enough, the day after my last posting, the scheduled backup ran normally, but since then it has failed (and no, I don't just mean on the days when the computer was switched off!). In fact I was sitting here at my computer waiting for the scheduled backup to run at 11 am today, and can confirm that nothing happened - except that the status now says:
Last backup on: 1/10/2009 11:08:00
Last backup was successful
Next backup on: 13/10/2009 11:00:00
Me too! Just to confirm: immediately after posting my last message, I ran a backup manually, then next day (October 13th), the backup scheduled for 11 am ran automatically, but today, as usual, nothing happened at 11 o'clock! In other words, after any change in the settings or a manual backup, the next scheduled backup runs, but not subsequent ones. I certainly hope this can be fixed, as in all other respects FBackup does a good job. It certainly beats Retrospect, which is totally incomprehensible and for some reason or other only backs up the files it feels like. I used it for months before I discovered that it wasn't actually backing up all the folders I had specified. I never managed to figure out why, and finally gave up and uninstalled it.
