Backup definition files  ran okay for 24 months.  No changes to hardware or OS.  Definition file  ran 18 times today per log.  Windows 7 Reflect version 6
No errors show on log.  Happens on two seperate definition files.  Each runs multiple times.
A seperate clone definition file runs as scheduled.
What is a strategy to resolve this problem.

I would start by just editing the affected definition files to remove the schedule entries, clicking Finish so that Reflect deletes the underlying Windows Task Scheduler tasks, and then reopening the definition files for editing to re-add the schedule entries.  There have been some issues reported over the past month based on anomalous behavior occurring the first time a given scheduled task runs after a time change from Daylight Savings to Standard Time (some people are running a monthly task for the first time after that change just now), but nothing like this -- and those issues relate to a Windows Task Scheduler bug that seems to have been around for quite some time, judging by posts on Microsoft's forums.  Anyhow, if there are any clues as to underlying cause for this, they would probably be in Windows Task Scheduler or Event Viewer, because Reflect uses Windows Task Scheduler under the hood and then just runs when Task Scheduler executes the correct command.  Reflect doesn't try to figure out whether it was "supposed" to be launched at any given occurrence, so Reflect itself likely wouldn't have any answers as to what's going on here.
