Backup Unscheduled
I have set Automatic Backups for weekly, Every Sunday at 7:00 pm to an
external hard drive. I am running Vista Home Premium.
On Saturday I got a message that says "Backup Failed" because it cannot find
the Backup Drive. That's because the external hard drive was not connected
at that time.

But, why does it try to do backups when it is not Sunday at 7:00 pm?

Thanks, CB

Hi, CB. Go back to the Backup & Restore Center, check the date of last
successful backup. Is the date a Sat. or Sun. ? If it was a Sun, check the
backup schedule settings, find out if it has been changed inexplicably since
the last backup.
