As a home user, I find many of the subleties and complexities of Macrium challenging.

Can anyone give me (baby steps please) instructions for the easiest way to run a scheduled backup which has been missed (because the computer was off at the scheduled time or because the target disk for the backup was not connected for instance)?

I have looked in Help, but failed to find the guidance I sought.

TIA for any suggestions,

Welcome!

1.  Open the Reflect GUI. 
2.  Click the "Scheduled Backups" tab.
3.  Locate the backup you want to run.
4.  Right-click the file & choose "Run Now"

Example:



NOTE:  My example points to a FULL image (I only do fulls).  If you do differentials and/or incrementals, they will also be shown as options.

Capair45 - many thanks for your rapid and helpful response.

I knew there had to be something like this available, but despite my poking around the interface I had missed the obvious.

A senior moment I think!

Adding to capair's guidance, Reflect's default behavior is to run missed backups as soon as possible, so if your system was off at the time, then you should see a Reflect scheduled backup launch shortly after your system powers up.  If multiple scheduled occurrences of the same backup were missed, you'll only get one rather than multiple back-to-back runs, and if multiple TYPES of backups were missed (Full, Diff, Inc), then only the "highest order" backup will run.

If you don't want missed backups to run as soon as possible, you can disable that option on a per-schedule basis.  To do that, edit your schedule (by right-clicking the schedule as capair showed and then clicking Edit) then click the Conditions button in the lower-left corner.
