I have a weekly Incremental Backup definition below. It is supposed to be run on On Mondays and Tuesdays as as defined. Today is Sunday 12/06 and it is running and I am not sure why. I have another backup definition that uses the GFS format and that was supposed to run today under a different name but it did not run and has not run since 11/2720 according to the log. Below the definition I also show part of the lof.

What version of Reflect are you running? If it’s 7.3, are you still using Windows Task Scheduler or did you switch to Macrium’s task scheduler? I encountered this behavior when using the former. My monthly Full would run on the day before it was supposed to AND on the correct day. It was a WTS bug, since WTS controls when the task fires. I haven’t seen that since I switched to using Macrium’s scheduler.

JP..Thanks, I think I found out how.   Thanks for your help. I will see what happens today and tomorrow.

I was also going to ask if you were on the Windows Task Scheduler and try switching to the Macrium one, if you could.


The only issue I've found with MTS is the scheduled backup icons always hide themselves on scheduled execution, even when you unhide them at some point.
