Newbie question: all profiles stop running after one throws up an error

Post by Keybug »

Unless I am mistaken, whenever one of my profiles exits with an error, e. g. a login fails for an online backup, all my backup profiles are suspended indefinitely. At least that is what's indicated by SBP's system tray icon.

Could this be possible or am I mistaken? I suspect the suspension lasts for a limited amount of time only, perhaps until the system is rebooted. However, I am not sure and don't know how to check.

Either way, this makes me uncomfortable as it could stop important local backups from being performed. Is there a setting I can use to make sure all other profiles continue to be run? Also, I often notice this only by chance. How can I set up SBP to give me an unmistakable popup notification that there has been a problem with a backup profile?

Many thanks!

You should be able to select your Group then Modify then uncheck the box "Stop the Group if any profile fails".

Thank you very much for your reply. However, I was unable to get to the screen shown in the image. Mine looks like this and I'm not sure where to select "Modify" or what to do to get there.
