Hello --- I have set up a daily backup to run on my laptop at 10a each day ---   usually don't  turn my laptop on  until after 10a  and  setup has the backup to  run  after the computer starts up

So if I don't turn on my computer on  Tuesday,   but on  Wednesday after 10a, it skips the Tuesday backup and just does Wednesday --- but if
I were to turn the computer on   before 10a on Wednesday,   would reflect do the Tuesday backup and the Wednesday backup too?   Thanks

I don't think Reflect will allow multiple iterations of the same scheduled task to stack up, i.e. it will run at most one iteration of a missed task.  And if you think about it, that kind of makes sense.  If you had your PC off for a week while you were on vacation, there would be no point running 7 iterations of the same backup job back to back, since they'd all end up capturing essentially the same data if they were executed one immediately after the other.  I haven't tested this, but I suspect that if your PC had been on by Wednesday at 9:59 AM, the missed Tuesday job would have run (since only one missed job would have accumulated by that point) and then the normal Wednesday at 10AM job would have run shortly thereafter -- although granted, that particular scenario of running a missed iteration just before a normally scheduled operation doesn't generate a particularly useful result either.
