    Hi,
    is there a setting in vista schedular so that it will re-run a missed
    schedule, due to the pc being turned off at the time of the set shedule. And
    to re-run on next boot up.
    I dont leave my pc on 24hrs a day like what the shedular seems to be
    programmed for.
    Regards,
    Graham....

    Open the properties of the task you are working on, click the settings
    tab, you will see a check box that allows the option to "Run the task as
    soon as possible after a scheduled start is missed".

    Hi,
    thanks for reply, i have the option that you pointed out under
    properties/settings but it will not enable when i click on the tab. It
    appears to be greyed out.
    Any ideas !!!!!

    Hmmm...Is this a task that you created? If this is a "System" task, you
    may be blocked out. Try running task scheduler as an admin and see if
    that makes a difference.

    System task does not block you out. You can change "System" in another
    user.
    Selection of "Windows server" in the general tab does grey out the
    setting

    Ok guys sorted,
    As telwat says the task needs to be set cofigured for Vista.
    To Clarify,
    If you go into the Vista Task Schedular and right click on the task in the
    schedular library and select properties there`s a box marked configure and
    this was set as Windows Xp server or something like that and i have now
    changed it to Windows Vista.
    This then enables the setting to >"run task as soon as possible after a
    scheduled task is missed".
    So all is working great now and my image & data backups are working fine.No its a scheduled task run by task schedular.

    Spot on........
