Hi,

I was able to add a schedule to one of my backup task but not for the others.


When I go into the properties of the task, then the Schedule option, I do see the box normally displaying the schedule but it's empty.


So I click on ADD, then I get the first pop up called "SCHEDULER PROPERTIES", then I click OK and enter my pass, nothing happens. I am returned to the main fbackup task schedule menu ("when do you want to backup" ) and it's blank, no schedule entered. When I should get a "detail schedule" window where I enter frequency and times.


When I go into the windows scheduler, I see that a schedule was created by fbackup with no times etc...


i am puzzled.

regards,

B.

Hi,


Do you use an administrator account?

yes.

I have 3 tasks and I was able to create a schedule for the first one, then could not for the other two (or even a new task).


I am under Win 7 Pro and latest fbackup (which I also re-installed but that changed nothing).

Hi,


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

Delete the existing tasks and try again to create scheduled tasks from FBackup.

that did the trick. I deleted all the Fbackup schedules and was able to re-create them for all tasks.

thanks!
