This is a rather nasty bug. Seems my scheduled backups don't always run, sometimes they do, sometimes not. See attachment: last run was manual, scheduled run didn't work. I'm doing backups to an external USB2 drive, the drive does go to "sleep" after a while... There are *no* errors in the log, the job simply doesn't run. Acronis TI interface is closed at the moment of backup, the computer is logged in but desktop is locked. I'm running 1143 on Windows 2003 SBS (Win SP1) These problems are very troublesome and i'm starting to lose confidence in the product. I don't want to manually check if my tasks run correctly. A solution to this, and the restore/drive letter issues, and the bloated incrementals is needed - For the moment I'd rather pay about 200$ more for LiveState recovery server. I like the linux approach in the restore CD's, and TI "feels" better and faster than LiveState, but I need it to be consistent and performant.
