    I have a scheduled incremental backup set for each week. On the latest occasion, the incremental backup started and failed due to a drive read error.

    After examining the schedule section in the management console, I noticed that TI had marked the backup status as having completed successfully when it obviously did not.

    I think this is a bug and could be a dangerous one. The only reason I knew the backup failed is because I was sitting there when the backup started and saw the error message over the tray icon. That in itself is not good - I would like to see a nice big red flag pop-up to tell me the backup failed - not just an obscure little tool-tip message.

    I was there because the machine was off when the schedule was due to run, so it started the backup when I turned on the PC - At least now I know that part actually works.

    Yes, I've had this happen as well. And I agree: it is very dangerous. If a back up fails, you should be notified whether or not you're at your PC at the time.
