This afternoon (24 April) I noticed that I didn't get a backup on the previous night as scheduled, even though my PC is on 24/7. It got stranger when I checked the Log tab and found that there was no log item at all for that night. It got stranger still when I checked the Scheduled Backups tab and it showed that the last execution of the scheduled task was the previous night (23 April) at the designated time, and the Last Result was Successful. So this evening I watched my PC to see what would happen. At the scheduled time, the postponement dialog popped up. I let it count down, after which it disappeared, and then....nothing. I checked Task Scheduler, and it now indicated that my Reflect scheduled task had just run and completed successfully -- but Reflect never did anything beyond displaying that postponement dialog. And once again I have no job log within Reflect.
The only thing I can think of that might account for this is that I updated to 7.2.4859 on 23 April before my scheduled backup time. I did not restart after that update, but the updater didn't prompt me to do so. I'm wondering if restarting my PC at this point might resolve this, but I'm refraining from doing so in case Macrium Support might want to work with me to determine root cause in case this issue might also affect other users. If this is occurring elsewhere, some users might simply not be noticing this yet if they don't check their backups regularly and/or only have email notifications enabled for failed backups, which would NOT be sent in this case since the job isn't running at all. (This incidentally is a textbook example of why I recommend having email notifications for both failed and successful backups in order to have positive confirmation of the latter!)
Screenshot taken before the 24 April backup time below, showing that the scheduled task last ran on 23 April allegedly successfully, even though my most recent backup is from 22 April. As of this writing, my backup files look exactly the same, but Reflect now shows that the scheduled task for my backup last ran today (24 April), again allegedly successfully.@Nick
, any ideas or interest in chasing this down on my PC?
