Strange Acronis 2014 issue. Advice appreciated.
Thank you in advance for any help.
I use Acronis True Image 2014, (should upgrade really but that's another story!) Works fine bar when the PC has a kernel power crash but a rescheduled back up does the trick.
The other day I thought I would try an save on electricity and see if shutting down the PC overnight might help as I usually leave it on, and the back up was always scheduled for 2am so thought I would just change the time and bring it forward a bit.
Shortly before 9 I changed the time of the schedule to 9pm but when 9pm hit the message "Failed to parse the script from file" kept appearing. I changed the time several times but always got that message and the back up was failing.
I therefore scheduled a completely new schedule and back up which created a link to a new folder on the D Link drive and switched it back to 2am because by then I had noticed in the settings that the program can wake the PC up from sleep and that works perfectly so I have three nights worth of good back ups at 2am. Problem is I am also getting a series of failed back up's at 9pm with the error messages "failed to process pair script" and "operation has completed with errors" under the event log.
The problem is on the home page only the 2am schedule is listed which shows the back ups are being saved to a different folder. The old schedule which was last left at 9pm seemed to vanish so whilst it is still trying to back up at the scheduled time I can't find this schedule anywhere so I can turn it off/delete it, if you get my drift?
Tried looking under all settings but cannot see this 9pm schedule anywhere so any ideas on why it is trying to back up at this time?
Thank you, hope it made sense!
