Cannot create scheduled backup in Registry Backup
« on: October 04, 2015, 01:24:13 am »
I've used Registry Backup successfully in the past to create Volume Shadow Copy backups both manually and on schedule. I recently purchased Windows Repair Pro (and very good it is too) and while I can successfully create manual backups using Registry Backups when starting Registry Backup (v 3.2.2) from within Windows Repair, I don't seem to be able to create a Registry Backup schedule. If I open settings and click on Edit Schedule I get the message: "The selected task "(0)" no longer exists. To see the current task, click Refresh". If I Click either Create or Delete Schedule I get an OK response.

I uninstalled my old version of Registry Backup when I installed Windows Repair Pro and I'm wondering if I may have caused a problem?

I'm using Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Click on "Create Schedule" first, you should get the "OK" and then select "Edit Schedule" if you wish to ammend it.

Thanks for replying. Yes, I've done that already - the program says schedule created but when I click on Edit, Task Scheduler opens then displays the message in my post: "The selected task "(0)" no longer exists. To see the current task, click Refresh"

Thanks for the link, Samson. Plenty of food for thought there! I'll wade through it and try out some of the suggested fixes and report back........

Thanks, Samson, the simplest suggestion in your link of changing the schedule of Windows Defrag seems to have worked for me - thank heavens I don't have to wade through some of the other somewhat scary solutions. I've actually turned off the automatic option in Defrag (I was pretty sure I'd done that before, but perhaps not) as I feel that it's not necessary to run it all that frequently and it's a real resource hog.

Stupid of me to blame Registry Backup for the error without trying to open Task Scheduler directly first - a bad case of "Post hoc ergo propter hoc".........

Good to hear that you've had a result  :cheesy:

If you mark this thread as "Solved" (Go back to your original post, select modify and then select "solved" from the message icon dropdown box). It will help others searching for a fix for the same problem.  :wink:

I only understood that from watching the Big Bang Theory  :shy:

When you click edit schedule in registry backup it doesnt do anything other than open the task scheduler for you. So as you found out that error was from the task scheduler itself, glad you found the cause of it and where able to fix it :-)
