FBackup does just what I want it to do - most of the time!
However, if my PC is switched off when FBackup shopuld run - next time the PC is switched on it just seems to skip that run - and set the run for the next day....
Altough my PC is on at some time most days - it isn't always the same time!
Is this s 'feature' or something I am doing wrong.
Great product BTW!

1. What version of FBackup do you use?
2. What scheduler type you selected: Windows scheduler or Built-in scheduler?
3. Do you have the same problem if you switch to the other scheduler type from Backup Properties->Scheduler->Edit->Properties ?

Thanks for the quick reply...
1 - 4.8 build 286
2 - Built In Scheduler
3 - I don't have a password set on my user account (which doesn't have admin rights) and the windows scheduler won't accept this, so I haven't tried it. Can I use the windows scheduler without an account password?

The missed backups are not automatically executed next time the computer is on.
To set the scheduler to start missed tasks as soon as possible, please go to Control Panel->Task Scheduler.
Double click the task you created and go to Settings.
Check the "Run task as soon as possible..." and press OK.

Thanks...... but I am using the built in scheduler, not the windows scheduler.
I have tried to use the Windows scheduler - using the Admin account and password.
This sets up a schedule OK, but the 'run as soon as possible' item was greyed out.
And althoug the scheduler tells me the task ran, FB told me it didn't!!
