I'm starting this topic again because I'm having the same problem: Win11 + SB11 = no scheduled tasks work.
I have scheduled tasks to download backups from several websites (FTP to my PC) several times a day.
This is a new PC with W11, before this I had W10 and SB11 and I had no problems with my scheduled tasks.
On my new PC I just installed SB11 and imported my profile files, which imported without a hitch, but when I run a scheduled task I (sometimes) get the error popup, just like you, but more importantly I have NO files downloaded from FTP on my PC.
I've checked the local group policy editor as mentioned in the help file, as well as a whole bunch of other parameters mentioned there, but nothing helps, it just won't work.
I uninstalled SB11 and reinstalled version 10.2.122.0 (the latest free version available) using this function:Found here: https://help.2brightsparks.com/support/solutions/articles/43000707808-installing-old-versions-using-winget
Code: Select all
winget install 2BrightSparks.SyncBackFree --version 10.2.122.0
And I repeated all my tests.
But it still doesn't work
I also noticed that with V10 the scheduled tasks in the Windows scheduler were configured for Win7.
My Windows session does have a password, which is the correct one entered in SB, all the rights in the various Windows policies have been checked...
I checked from the windows task scheduler too...
Has anyone been able to find a solution to this problem?
It was still very practical to have these scheduled tasks because the PC could be in standby mode during the day, the scheduled tasks would wake it up, then it would go back into standby mode, etc...
Now I have to use the periodicity function, which forces me to disable the PC's standby mode...
Please help me
In Task Scheduler you might want to double-check the “Conditions” tab of your task and make sure the “Wake the computer to run this task” box is checked (or maybe even delete the old task and create a new one from inside SyncBack).
You might also check the "Allow wake timers" under Windows power settings, and see if it's enabled (I don't have Win11, but I'm assuming the settings are the same).
Those are the only two possibilities that jump to mind
