I'm on a 15 day trial of TI-10, and really need to see if this is a bug or something I'm doing wrong on my end before I can know whether or not to purchase. Sorry this is a little long, but I thought the more info I could provide the better. (You can see some background on my issue in this thread.) My goal: To have a scheduled task automatically backup my computer to a networked drive on another machine on a regular basis, without that machine getting buried under a pile of backups. Solution: This *should* be doable (and easy) in TI-10, which is why I want it. Create a Backup Location on the networked machine. Set a policy of X backups max in that location. Create a scheduled task to regularly backup my files to that Backup Location. Done. Right? Wrong. There are two options for connecting to a networked drive when creating a Backup Location: 1) Directly through My Network Places (end result: \\machine\folder) 2) Through a locally "mapped" drive (end result: Y Acronis lets me setup a Backup Location in either manner. However, if I use option 1, the Backup Policy simple doesn't work. I can have it set to maximum 1 backup, and do a dozen full backups without one ever getting deleted. From the logs, Acronis sees that the rule is broken and tries to delete previous backups to conform to the rule, but encounters an error when doing so. End result: No working policy. Using option 2, I don't have that problem. I can backup all day long to the same location and the Policy will always work correctly, deleting or merging previous backups as needed to conform to the rules. However, I can't successfully schedule the backup to run automatically using this option. If I choose "Do not run automatically" it will run fine. But if I choose a time/day for it to run, it fails, whether I run that task manually or let it run at the scheduled time. The error that it gives is: (""Failed to open the file Y:\ for write: Cannot open archive for writing. (0x400003) path = "Y:\" Tag = 0xD7386B598A774D60 End of file was encountered. (0x40002) Tag = 0xC1C09B38BAFA78A8.") So I'm stuck, as they say, between a rock and a hard place, with no way to run tasks to a networked drive both 1) automatically, and 2) with a Backup Policy enforced. I have trouble believing that no one else is doing this successfully though, so it could be a problem on my end. If you ARE getting this to work, are you doing it using option 1 (\\machine\folder) or using option 2 (Y? Thanks so much for your help!
