Hi I've posted a question to the Acronis support, 2 times, and I've received no response.... So I try here The problem is: the time beetween the 16th and 17th (which is the last) steps of a scheduled task is increasing over 2mn30s. Afer the 16th step ("La vérification du fichier de sauvegarde est terminée"), the little Acronis logo in the task bar disapears, and the user believes that the PC will close very shortly. But the PC doesn't stop. So, the user stops again the PC (via Start Menu), and the others tasks are not done. If the user doesn't stop the PC again, the last step (Opération réussie) occurs, and the next task begins. When I've created this tasks, there was no time beetween the 17th and the 18th steps. But today (2 mounths latter), the time is > 2mn30s. The file to be saved is not bigger than 2 mounths ago. Can you help me please? PS: Sorry if the explaination is a little "hard" to understand, it's not very easy for me to write in english.
