Reflect V7 has a scheduling option to take a new full image each month, and then incrementals the rest of the schedule. Or that is what I thought. I see today that I have 2 '00' images for the new month, an hour apart from each other. What do I have mis-configured?

Can you go the Log tab and post the logs for the jobs that generated each of the files with those names?  Right-click any white space in the log viewer window, click Select All, then copy/paste each log into its own text file or something, then remove your license key from the bottom of each job log.  To upload files here, mouse over the Insert button underneath the box where you write your post and click Add File.

I added both logs, deleting the key at the bottom as asked.

That's very strange.  Reflect really did run two Full backups of the exact same definition file.  It's possible that the jobs were even triggered simultaneously, but since Reflect only runs one job at a time, the second Full would've been queued until the first one completed.  Can you go to Reflect and check your Scheduled Backups tab (all the way on the right) to make sure there aren't multiple listings for a Full backup referring to this definition file?  I'm wondering if somehow Reflect may have created a duplicate scheduled task at some point that might be responsible for this, in which case that would be shown under that Scheduled Backups tab.  Otherwise, you don't happen to live in an area where a time change would have just occurred, do you?  I remember some people (but by no means everyone) saw behavior like this when their region they switched from Daylight Savings Time to Standard Time.

I grabbed an image of the schedules. One fill, One Incr. NYC, so no time change, just the year.

That looks perfectly normal -- and it looks like someone else just observed the same behavior in a thread they just created here: https://forum.macrium.com/Topic20508.aspx

This one might be something Macrium has to investigate.  It doesn't look like anything is wrong on your end, although you can certainly delete one of those Full backups if you haven't already.

Please keep me in the loop. Maybe I should also post a ticket. I get exactly the same thing. I full image my c and d drives on subsequent days. Both run followed by running again an hour later, so I get 4 images each month. Started with version 7.

Still working with support. They had me delete the schedules and redo them (kept the backup definition). So I won't see this again until Feb 5, first Monday.
But the newly set up incremental ran twice, on the December and on the January full files.
E5... is the December Full/Incremental
70... and 62... were the duplicate Full
E5... and 62... at the top were the Incrementals which ran twice, the top two lines.

I posted all this into the ticket. I turned on Task Scheduler History before I recreated the schedules, included the etvx files in the ticket too as well as the exported task's XML.
