I have a backup scheduled for 3 am every morning that is not happening. Windows 7 Ultimate, using the fBackup scheduler. I have not tried the Windows scheduler yet.
How can I troubleshoot?
Oh and I changed the schedule to run again immediately. Now failed again, but can't run manually because it says "running from the command line" . Very short job so it should be finished - takes only 2 minutes to run when run manually. So another question. How do I abort a failed job if it is stuck on the command line (though no cmd window on machine.) I can go to the application manager, but I don't want to do that routinely.
I am running FBackup on several computers. All of them are running Windows 7. I use the internal scheduling function, not the windows scheduler.
On machine #1 I have to keep Fbackup running minimized in the system tray in order for the scheduler to work.
On machine #2, I noticed this morning that it was not running in the system tray (and not, apparently, anywhere else for that matter) but when I went to check on whether it had performed the scheduled backups overnight, I found that it had.
So here's my question: Is there a particular configuration of options that will enable the schedule to be executed even if FBackup is not actively running? Or am I inferring something that did not actually happen as I believe it did with machine #2?
