Scheduled backup attempted with deleted xml file

By Haole Boy - 6 October 2021 12:55 AM

Hello. Running Macrium Free v 7.3 build 5925 on Windows 10 Home 21H1. I recently created new backup.xml files with different names than my previous ones. I deleted the previous xml files through Windows file manager - i.e.: they no longer exist. But, Macrium is still trying to run them. Of course, there is an error (xml file not found), but how do I stop Macrium from trying to run these files?  I'm using the Macrium task scheduler, not Windows Task Manager.

Thanx.  Harry Z

Go to the Scheduled Backups tab and delete the jobs associated with the old XML file.  Going forward, if you delete the XML files from the Backup Definition Files tab, you'll see an option to delete schedules as well as the XML file itself, so that's probably easier for next time.

Aloha @jphughan.  Mahalo (thank you) for the advice. Not sure how I missed the existence of the "Scheduled Backups" tab, but I did.  Thanks again.
