Actually, I just took I closer look at that version number, and you could only be running Windows Task Scheduler. Macrium Task Scheduler didn't arrive until Reflect 7.3, and it was developed specifically to get Reflect away from WTS and some bugs that could cause backups not to run and/or to run at unexpected times in addition to expected times. So perhaps as a basic first question, why are you running a Reflect release that is over 2 years old? There have been quite a few bug fixes and enhancements since then. If you've kept an eye on the release notes and made a conscious decision not to update based on their contents, then you might still want to update now to try Macrium Task Scheduler. If on the other hand you haven't even looked at the release notes over the last 2 years and have also avoided updated because "everything's been working fine", well....first of all everything apparently HASN'T been working fine. But in addition, sometimes bugs exist that can affect restore scenarios, so even if backups WERE working fine, it doesn't necessarily mean there's been no reason to update in 2 years. I've seen people encounter problems when trying to restore backups using their Rescue Media created by outdated Reflect versions that never got updated, whereas if they'd updated their Rescue Media before their system died, they wouldn't have had that restore problem. I don't advocate for installing updates just for the sake of updating, since updates do sometimes break things that used to work, but I would say that if you choose not to update, understand what you're skipping out on. Or if you don't want to take that kind of time, then on balance, keeping current is probably better than leaving everything alone.
