I just installed the anniversary update. Since the schedules I made no longer work. It does not start. If I manually start the schedule (right click, run now) it marks the last backup as succesful, though it did no backup at all. If I start the backup definition manually it works like charm. I already removed all backup tasks and definition and reinstalled reflect. But the new schedules also won't work.

When you ran it manually, the Window Task Scheduler may show success in having triggered the task, but that doesn't necessarily mean that the backup task ran and completed the backup operation itself successfully.  Check Reflect's operational logs and see what they say about it.  I suspect you'll find an error there saying something like "couldn't append to backup set".

The Window 10 "Anniversary" update is, in fact, more like an OS upgrade and, like most recent Windows OS upgrades, it can re-arrange your drive layout to add its own new WinRE partition.  Re-arranged drive layouts, in turn, confuse the heck out of existing backup definitions and plans, especially for incrementals until a fresh new full backup is created successfully.  That should be done after a major OS update in any case, and you may need to edit and resave your backup task definitions in order to do it.

Manually, the backups are resolved. As I said, I removed all old backup tasks and definitions. The new ones still do not run via schedule. There is no error message in the scheduling process, it even marks the process as succesful, but there is no backup done.

Sorry, but when you said "If I manually start the schedule (right click, run now) it marks the last backup as succesful, though it did no backup at all", I understood that to mean only that the Windows Task Scheduler was showing success.  Your image, however, seems to indicate success in Reflect's operational logs as well, although it's not clear what heading that "Not yet run" item is under.

I  know that there have been some serious difficulties with the scheduler handling tasks created using the Task Scheduler 1.0 API in the W10 "Insider Preview" series leading up to this update.  Maybe they haven't yet been fully resolved.

The heading of "not yet run" is "Status". It is a german version, I don't know, if it is the same in english. Wink

Yup, the same word exactly.  A holdover from the days when Latin was the universal language of all "civilised" peoples. Wink

I'm downloading the W10 "Anniversary" update ISO now and will report results with my scheduled tasks ASAP, but probably not until tomorrow.

Thanks for posting.

When I arrive in the office tomorrow I will look into the reported issue with scheduling and Windows 10's anniversary update.

Kind Regards

Stephen

That would be good if you have it available then, Stephen.  Microsoft's phased auto-update release hasn't shown up for me yet and I seem to be running into a few difficulties with the direct ISO download, but I'll try to provide whatever feedback I can as soon as I can.  If they haven't fixed those Task Manager API 1.0 issues, that could be a major PITA for all concerned.

I've been facing issues with the scheduler and scheduled tasks as reported in this thread: http://forum.macrium.com/Topic7709.aspx#bm8375

Now that Windows 10 1st Anniversary build is official I hope Macrium are able to fix this issue. I am on Windows 10 Pro x64 version 1607 build 14393.10 (anniversary edition + 2 cumulative updates to build 14393.10)

Thanks in advance for your help and for making a great backup program that has saved my skin more times than I remember. Smile I've been an MR user since June 2012. It gets my highest recommendation for a backup utility with family, friends & on online fora.
