30 minutes long waiting for non-working source

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

30 minutes long waiting for non-working source

Post by tjsz »

OS: Windows 7
Sw: SyncBackFree 7.6.64

I have a daily scheduled batch script, this script calls SyncBackFree with WDR3600 profile.

The source is in this WDR3600 profile: \\WDR3600\mnt\wd\ (WDR3600 is a TP-Link WDR3600 router with an shared, external USB disk)
The destination is in this WDR3600 profile: D:\WDR3600 (D:\ is a local disk)

The logs always sent in e-mail (via gmail account).

The problem: the script is scheduled for 23:05 (it calls SyncBackFree directly), but if WDR3600 router is not available
(for example switched off), then SyncBackFree send the "The network path was not found." mail at 23:34 only (so 30 minutes later).

What is this 30 minutes timeout? Why is it waiting?

Thanks in advance!
