Access Denied when trying to schedule

Post by Soundchasr »

I'm syncing to my Diskstation. I set up one profile to sync a folder and the scheduling went fine. However, everyone I try to sync now cannot be scheduled - I get access denied when I enter my password. Not sure what to do to fix and not sure why the first one worked....

Appreciate any help.

I have a similar problem but I don't have a Windows 10 password. After scheduling my 1st sync went ok, I receive the following error for any new schedule:
"Enter your Windows logon password for xxx. If you do not have a password simply press OK."
Clicking OK does not work.

Same problem - After an in-situ upgrade from Windows 7 Pro 64 bit to Windows 10 Pro 64 bit, my scheduled profiles are no longer scheduled.
When I try to schedule them it asks for a Windows logon password, which I enter correctly but I get an Access Denied dialog box ...

Meanwhile a test on a fresh Windows virtual machine, logged in as a standard user with UAC defaults (same as user in original problem), I don't get Access Denied - so it's not a lack of privileges for setting up a task in Windows Scheduler. Will try again on upgraded system by seeing if can manually set up task directly in Windows Task Scheduler ...

Although this may be a bug, you can enter or change a schedule without the error by starting Syncback doing "Run as Administrator".

I thought of this run as admin. Did it and still asks for password. My admin account was never set up with a password. I live by myself and I don't need to be using password. What is the fix here if run as administrator doesn't work?

Hi,

With the release version of SyncBack, you can create a schedule task without password. Click on the schedule drop-down button at the bottom of SyncBack main-window and select "Run only when the user is logged on" to create a schedule task without password.

*Note when you configure the schedule task to run only when logged-in, you need to ensure that you are logged-into Windows prior to the schedule run. If not, the schedule task will fail to run.

Thank you.
