backup at shutdown

I want to do a backup when I shutdown. I set it up in the schedule section. It seems to start but then is killed by sutdown. The log shows it started. I’m using Vista Home Premium. What am I doing wrong?


Hi frankd105

Welcome to the forums

It sounds like shutdown beats the backup in your case. Try going to the external task tab and enter in the “to run at end of backup” box a batch file that you can write that has this code in it.
shutdown -s -t 00
Then you can set the scheduler to run and shutdown the computer for you. I know that may not be ideal but may be a workaround for you.
