    TI10 problem:

    I have two tasks. A full backup and then an incremental. They backup to a disk on another computer on the network which is not password protected. The full runs once a week and the incrementals, the other 6 days. Once I created these I selected the Full to run. It backed up just fine, creating Mybackup.tib. Later that day, I selected the incremental to run, to test it. I worked just fine.

    That was yesterday. Today I awoke to see if it successfully ran the incremental at 4:30 am as scheduled in the task. It did not. I checked the log. Sure enough at 4:30 it tried. But it said that that the task did not supply the right user name and password to access the remote backup drive. It failed.

    But this incremental is the same task that I highlighted and chose to run yesterday, with sucess. There was no problem with passwords. And, I just tried this again now and it worked again.

    Why would it have a problem when running at the scheduled time, and not when I run the same exact task on demand?

    TI9 never had this problem.

    Why oh why did I ever go with 10, when 9 worked so wello_O? Argghhh!
