I have been testing a trial version in the hope that Paragon Backup would be a possible replacement for Acronis True Image. (TI always "seemed" to be working okay, but I found out otherwise when I actually had to restore a hard drive and ran in to repeated problems with corrupt and unreadable backups.) As a test, I have tried to create a daily scheduled backup of my documents folder to a USB-attached hard drive. The task will run if "run now" is selected, but it will absolutely not run on schedule. I have tried to run on schedule either with login credentials (when I have been signed off) or leaving myself logged in through the scheduled back up time. No joy either way. Is the scheduler disabled in the trial version (which I thought was supposed to be a time-limited version of the full product) or is this a fault with the scheduler? If the latter, the product is useless to me. Any advice will be appreciated.
