Scheduler problem

Postby Beckler » Thu Feb 22, 2018 6:21 pm

There's some issue with scheduler that gives a Last Run Result error "invalid directory" then doesn't run, but worse it doesn't alert you it didn't run. In scheduler I just created a new event and deleted the old one and now it works. But it had gone for months without me noticing.

Hi,

Was the scheduled task from a previous version of FBackup?

Hi, I'm not sure now, but yes it probably was.

This same problem has happened again. The task just sits in Scheduler with the error and doesn't run, and doesn't alert the user. With the other problems it has, like redoing the whole mirror backup job for no apparent reason, and this one, both having gone for months with no fix, I am unable to trust this program.

Hi,

The previously reported situation was not a problem in FBackup. As explained here http://www.fbackup.com/forum/general-f2/repeat-backups-take-same-time-t8780-s10.html?sid=df4bd6da2b833e3495a8ad2338e73708, the files were not backed up before (as you cancelled the backup), so the backup did not copied them twice, but only one time.

As for the current situation, the task which should start FBackup, crashed. FBackup cannot know that, as they are normal Windows scheduled tasks. So you should see the reason why the scheduled task returned an error.
