having trouble to get this to work as i think it should . 
i have 4 drives scheduled to run weekly on friday mornings. the back up drive has to be turned on, which sometimes i forget to do. when i do remember (say friday afternoon) i expect, falsly it seems, that the tasks for the friday morning will start sometime before the next friday . searching for "run the task" or "after scheduled start" in the  485 page pdf file produces no hits. if anyone has the time and the knowledge could they explain what the ticked box "run task as soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed" should do. thanks russell holden

Here is a link to the KB article you're looking for but it may not be much help.  Are you using the Macrium Task Scheduler or the Windows Task Scheduler?


Windows 10 Home (21H1)  Build 19043.1889
Macrium Reflect 8.0.6867
Windows Defender
Malwarebytes Premium 4.5.10

That option may apply only to the computer coming on line, not a backup storage device.  You may have to manually run a backup in that case.  Perhaps someone else will jump in here to explain this better.

The option you’re talking about does indeed only apply to when the actual scheduled task didn’t run because Windows wasn’t running at the time. If the destination isn’t available, then the scheduled task would still run. The job would fail, but that’s not due to a missed scheduled task. There’s nothing in Reflect to facilitate automatically retrying a backup that failed. You could use another application to cause a Reflect backup to run as soon as a destination disk was connected though.

It's been several years, but when I used to use that start a backup after a missed schedule option, the backup didn't run until the PC was restarted.  After which, upon Windows start, the backups were queued/started.

I use an application called USB Drive Letter Manager (USBDLM). Despite the name, it works with non-USB devices and can do a lot more than manage drive letters. One thing it can do is run an application when a volume is mounted, and that volume can be identified by a variety of criteria, such as volume label or the existence of a file at a specific path on that volume. So you could for example configure USBDLM to check for the presence of a file called ReflectBackupDisk.txt on volumes, and when a volume appears that contains that file, to run Reflect with the appropriate definition file specified in order to trigger the desired backup.
