I understand that the definition file storage default location is C; > Users > User Name > Documents > Reflect but where are the schedules found?  Am I correct in assuming that they are not combined with the .XML file but instead are separate files in their own?  When a scheduled task's time comes, does the associated schedule fetch the definition file? 

I'm using Macrium Task Scheduler.

I believe they may be stored under C:\ProgramData\Macrium\Reflect\Scheduler.  It seems that the scheduled task fetches the associated definition.  The file definitions.xml apparently specifies the parameters to be invoked when running a scheduled instance of Reflect, including the path and name of the definition file.

I was under the impression that the schedules had a .sch extension.  I'm not seeing that in the above path.

I believe .sch is the extension for an exported schedule.  These are XML files, but the extension was changed from .xml to .sch (in v7.2.5197beta) to avoid confusion with backup definition files.

So the files with an .xml extension shown in my screen shot are the actual schedules?

I know nothing about reading XML language but opening schedules.xml in Notepad does seem to include some scheduling terminology.

Yes, except that, as far as I can tell, there is not a separate .xml file for each individual schedule.  Instead, the details about all schedules are contained in the files named definitions.xml, plans.xml, queues.xml, and schedules.xml.

Yes, I think you may be correct.  Appreciate your research on this.

Just for kicks, I opened Reflect and exported a schedule to the same folder where my definition files (.XML) are stored.  Sure enough, Reflect saved it with a .sch extension.
