I set up Windows task scheduler to run FBackup on Windows Server 2003, Windows Vista, and Windows XP and FBackup does not run even though it seems to get the command and indicate the next Windows scheduled run time. And yes, I am uaing fbaSchedStarter.exe /R "job name" -STD. I looked at the posts and it seems a lot of people had trouble with this in the past. In my case, the task is set to run when the user is logged off. However, the computers never sleep, especially the server. Any ideas?

Hi,


Please note the FBackup scheduler does not run when no user is logged on.

You probably are not supposed to promote the paid version but can you tell me if Backup4All can run when no user is logged on? This would be good to know for those users that are willing to go that way.

Hi,


Yes, using Backup4all you can run scheduled backups even if no user is logged on.
