Hi
I can't seem to be able to turn off one-click back up, it wants to run on Sundays at 8 pm, no matter how many times I change it to none and change the time and day, it keeps coming back to it's own original location and its own time of Sunday at 8 pm. HELP. Sunday is coming up fast, and I don't want it to back up to this location........

When you make the changes in the Task Editing, are you saving your changes?

After changing the time, Click on the left margin menu item "Finish".
Click on the Proceed button but make sure the "run job now" is unchecked.

Hi GroverH

Are we both talking about the TI home 2010? ON my one-click backup little window, there there is a Learn more.... section on top, then there is the Partition to back up section which is not editable, then there is the Archive location which is editable, then Schedule also editable. then a help question mark logo and on the right 2 buttons Proceed and Cancel. there is no finish, no check box for run job now. Where can I go to see those, that would totally solve my problems.
Thanks

Sorry to mislead you. I do not use the One click option but I will configure it and try to help you.
My reference to the editing related to the normal edition of the scheduled tasks in 2010-6053 and not the oneclick. The user manual does say that the one click can be configured and changed to a different schedule. I will try it later and see how mine reacts.

One-Click Backup" How to stop/delete/change schedule

After you have invoked or initiated the One-Click Backup to run once, this action causes a new "scheduled task' named "System Backup" to be added to the Task and Logs option of TrueImage Home. This task has created a "very limited" backup of your system partition (only) and MBR.

This new task can now be modified in the same manner as making changes to any other scheduled or non-scheduled task. Simply open TrueImage Home to the "Task & Logs" option and right click on task named "System Backup". Now, you will have a listing of the many task editing options applicable to this or any other TrueImage task. You can change the schedule to a different time or date or change to a "Do not schedule"; or change what partitions are to be backed up, or delete the task completely, etc. Any and all of these changes are possible. After you have made your changes to the various task options, maneuver by clicking the "next" button. This is especially needed if you finish on the scheduling option page. Click on the left margin menu item "Finish". Now, either Check or uncheck the "run job now" (your preferance) before clicking the Proceed button to save your changes.

As I read the user manual, only the system partition (usually C) and MBR is being backed up. If you have a data partition or a boot partition or any other partitions on your system disk, these are NOT being included in your "one-click" backup. This initial limitation needs to be user corrected so that the "disk" option is checked so all your data and partitions on your system disk are included in this backup.

If you have partitions that are not being backed up, and need to restore to a replacement disk, these missing partition cannot be transferred to a new disk since these are not included in the backup.

The solution is to either edit the existing "System Backup" task or create an entire new task from within the Task & logs options. The modification needed is listed on the "What to backup" screen and check mark the "disk" option backup so your system backup includes everything on the system disk. This solution is described in 6.3.2 on page 42 of the manual.

As I analyze this "One-click" backup feature, it primary value is to initiate a quick limited backup until the new user becomes more familiar with other backup options. This feature semi-automatically creates a scheduled task. Everytime you click the One-click backup option, this new click results in a new "System Backup" task being created. Any edits you made to the prior task are lost because the new task overlays the old task. My recommendation is that you do NOT re-use the One-click option listed on the Tools & Utilities menu. Instead, either edit the task or create a new one as described above and modify "What to Backup". After you have the desired options inside the task, then you can let it run from its new schedule; or you can right click on the edited/new task and choose to Start option to run manually.

Once you have customized a scheduled task to do a complete disk backup, you will find little use for this specific feature. If it is the one-click feature which is attractive, the same can be accomplished via a desktop shortcut. Use oracledba's Chain2Gen to supplement your TrueImage backups.

thanks grover.
When I first installed TI_2010 I canceled out the 1click task and purposely deleted the Icon.
and never looked at it again.
I dont trust things that hide all the detail from you but claim to be doing something useful.
As I read your assessment I conceptualize it as a feature designed for those that prefer to know little about their pc and their HD's but still want some protection even if they might not not how to use the backup in a restore situation. It gives them something with very little effort and it may be just enough to help them when the time comes.
Others that take take the time the learn about their Pc and HD will actually plan their backups to ensure with 100% confidence that they can recover from any diaster. It may take a few hours even a day's effort but you "know" that when your done you have an automated backup plan gives you true protection day in, day out month after month and you know that the protection is true because you proved it by actually doing it.

Hi Grover
OK, I have ran one backup using one-click and it did not create a new task in Tasks and Logs. Either we have different builds of the software or something is screwy here. However I have ATIH 2010 installed (legally) on 6 computers on a network and they all show the same thing. OracleDBA's idea of just deleting the One-Click icon is what I would like to do, as I do my own images with a network central base. However I am still concerned about the setting, which I seem unable to change of the One-Click wanting to do a backup on Sunday at 8pm. Especially that it plans to do it on a secure portion of my disk, which means it wants to create a new partition on this disk, definitely something I do not want. Any other ideas?

My responses has been based on running XP Pro-SP3; TI Home 2010 build 6053. I do not have a Secure Zone installed and did not test One-Click being placed into a secure zone. As for other ideas, these are just an assortment of miscellaneous hunting.

If you have a desktop icon for the one-click task,
right click on the icon and check its properties. Perhaps there is something there which gives you a clues as to its identity. Deletion of the icon cannot hurt you but I'm not sure deleting the icon will stop it from running if a script still remains somewhere.

Can you make a careful examination of the tasks listed in the Tasks & logs and see if the task is there under another name.

Have you confirmed whether backup is being placed in a normal folder or the secure zone? If you find the backup files, look at the date and time of their creation and then look at your Scripts folder and see if any of the *.tis scripts have a similar time of activity. This link might help to show where your scripts folder is located. Is there *.tis scripts listed in your scripts folder which do not appear on your Tasks & Logs listing of scheduled or non-scheduled tasks?

The secure zone is maintained from inside TrueImage Home. It can be deleted or expanded, etc. Does editing the Secure Zone offer any adjustments to this task. Be very careful what you click inside the Secure zone option. I do not have Secure zone installed but did click once on the Manage Secure Zone option. I visually looked around and then clicked the cancel button.

HI Grover

That's just it, when I click on one-click, I get this will back up on Sunday at 8 threat. But if I go into scheduled tasks for Sunday, there is nothing listed. So I don't know if one-click has it's own task scheduler or what. Also , i found that it wants to use the Secure zone only if there is only one drive/partition on the computer. I have used partitioning software on all five computers to add a second partition ( i like to have a data partition on all my computers anyway) . Now one click shows that the Sunday back up will be to my new data partition. That is a bit better. I think what I will do is call One-Click's "bluff" and wait for Sunday at eight and see what it does. At least it will not create any secure zones on its own. I just find it poor software design, that One-CLick seemingly goves you options, but then they don't "stick".

As discussed above, remember, your new partitions are not being included in the one-touch backup.

Maybe support will see this posting and provide some answers as to how to handle modifications to the one-touch backup when it is pointing to the secure zone.
