    I have been having ATI (#2337) not following a backup schedule, and I am trying to figure out why. I am trying to list all the possibilities and eliminate them.

    Here are a few:

    *. Windows is not running: False.
    *. Incorrect admin login password: False.
    *. Acronis scheduler service is not running: Not sure.
    *. Time warp (e.g. NTP update): Possible.
    *. Backup destination not present: False.
    *. Backup destination is full: False.
    *. Wrong archive password: False.
    ...
    Please think of more possibilities.

    The scheduler will fail - if the system has gone into standby or harddrives have powered down.

    Scheduler will not run invoke TI if the user is not logged on.

    Do you mean schedule will not run without the admin logging in first?

    No the scheduler will load at startup as it is a service, however it won't invoke TI for a scheduled event if no one is logged on.

    I'm not sure what happens if a user account is logged on and not an ADMIN one.

    The zip file does not contain the appropriate files to replace.

    Still have problem - same problem. Submitted logs to support.

    Some seemingly irrelevant facts:

    • I have two nearly identical external hard drives (same model) that I use to store backup images. I swap them approximately every month.
    • I have tried to completely delete a backup task, and recreate it from scratch.
    • I have NTP time synchronization request approximately every 20 minutes.
