SyncBack scheduled tasks not running anymore

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE/Lite.

SyncBack scheduled tasks not running anymore

Post by cbiweb » Thu Jan 26, 2017 3:44 am

I got the Windows 10 Anniversary update on the 15th of this month. I just noticed tonight that since that point, no backups have been made. Is there a known issue with the Win10 update?

Hi,

You haven’t stated the version of SyncBackFree you are using? If you are not using the latest version V7.6.50.0, please download and install it from here:

https://www.2brightsparks.com/assets/so ... _Setup.exe

Do not uninstall and reinstall, or you'll lose your profiles & settings. Just install 'over the top'.

And check if there are any errors in the Modify > When > Edit Schedule settings page and 'Last Scheduled Run Error' column of SyncBackFree's main-interface (after the scheduled time has been passed).

In addition, please read these two KB articles for the errors you might encounter when creating or running schedule tasks on Windows 10:

Thank you.

Piggy backing onto this - I can't get SyncBack Free to run at scheduled times - I tried all the suggestions in here and nothing works making this app I've been using happily for years useless.

:(

None of the suggestions worked for me, either. I've just been manually backing up when I get a moment each day or two.

Hi,

Please delete and recreate the schedule task from:

Modify profile > When > Edit Schedule page

to see if it helps?

Thank you.
