Scenario: you set up a scheduled backup. At some point, it fails to start; on the Schedule tab, the Last Result column shows status ‘Failed’.
Our programs use the native Windows Task Scheduler to set events. The task status shown on the tab Schedule reflects whether the scheduled Windows event was successfully launched, rather than whether or not the backup was successful. If a backup is ‘failed’, it means the event failed to fire up.
By default, events only launch when the same user is logged in. If you were logged out or the PC was used under another user profile, the event would have failed to launch. The solution is to edit the event’s properties and set it to run under a given user profile (given login/password) regardless of logon status. To set credentials (with administator access) open task properties on Schedule tab – Schedule – “Run as”.
Another possible reason is overlap between events. Only one instance of the Paragon engine process can be active at any time, so if a backup is launched before the previous one is completed, it will fizzle. The solution is to schedule events farther apart, giving sufficient window to finish before the next backup is started.
Also please do the following:
1) Navigate to Windows Task Scheduler (type Taskschd.msc in command prompt) and find “Active tasks”
2) Find “Paragon scheduled task” – double click on the task. Navigate to “General” – “Run with the highest privileges”
3) If you did not set login/password to run task within Paragon product, select “Run whether user is logged in or not” there and enter credentials on apllying task changes.
