Had odd behavior with my scheduled backup for Thursday. Today, at its scheduled time, the dialog window came up saying the backup was about to execute. I thought it then started because it disappeared, but, at the same time, I was scrolling through windows in Firefox, so I wasn't paying attention. I went away to eat breakfast and came back to the PC, resuming work. At 10:15 AM, 30 minutes after the scheduled start for the backup, the prompt to run the backup appeared again.
I cancelled the backup, thinking the 9:45 AM one had run. But, when I checked the Logs, it had not, in fact, run at 9:45. And because I cancelled it at 10:15, it hadn't run at all. I checked the schedules for Thursday's backup and there was only one set: the one for 9:45 AM. There were also no set schedules for any backup to run on any day at 10:15 AM.
One possible explanation is I may have, somehow, set the delay running of the backup to 30 minutes later in the countdown dialog. I think there's a delay for 15 minutes option, so there may be a 30 minute as well. I may have, while scrolling through the web pages, accidentally somehow selected a 30 minute delay in the countdown dialog. It makes some sense as the delay was 30 minutes after the previous prompt.
The above explanation also makes some sense because I believe I've done this before while scrolling through Firefox pages when the countdown window opens.
Anyway, I thought I'd report this. I'll keep an eye on tomorrow's backup, if I can remember, and make sure it actually runs on time. And hopefully I can remember to monitor next Thursday's scheduled backup and check on it running on time.
