Macrium Reflect uses either the built-in Macrium Task Scheduler or the standard Windows Task Scheduler to schedule backups. This article shows you how to check the status of your most recently run scheduled tasks.
The Macrium Task Scheduler is the preferred option and is the default option for fresh installs. See more about the Macrium Task Scheduler here: New in Macrium Reflect 7.3
To change between Windows Tasks Scheduler and Macrium Task Scheduler take 'Other Tasks' > 'Edit Defaults' > 'Schedule'. See here
Viewing Scheduled Tasks in Macrium Reflect
Click the 'Backup' > 'Scheduled Backups' tab in Macrium Reflect:
The 'Last Run Time' and 'Last Result' columns show information about the last run from the Windows Task Scheduler:
Understanding the 'Last Result' Codes.
Generic Last Result Codes
|0x00||The last run completed without errors|
|0x01||An error occurred during the backup or the backup was canceled. See the backup log for more information|
|0x02||The XML definition file had errors or could not be loaded|
A conflict has occurred. Caused by scheduling different backup types for the same XML file at the same time.
This is a normal and expected error code that occurs when scheduled backups overlap. For example, when scheduling a Full backup on the first Monday of each month and scheduling a Differential for every Monday, on the first Monday a Full and Differential are both scheduled to run at the same time. In this scenario, the Full backup will run and the Differential will fail with the '0x06 - Conflict' error code.
Full backups take precedence over Differentials and Incrementals
Differential Backups take precedence over Incrementals.
|0x103||The Windows task scheduler has terminated. This status can occur if your PC is manually rebooted or shut down before the backup has finished. It can also occur if the option to shutdown the PC at the end of a backup has been selected.|
Macrium Task Scheduler Last Result Codes
|0x52E||The scheduled task has an incorrect password|
|0x525||The scheduled task user account cannot be found|
|0x522||The user account doesn't have the 'Batch logon' privilege required to run scheduled tasks. See here.|
The Macrium Task Scheduler requires Macrium Service to be running for your scheduled backups to execute. If stopped, the following button is displayed instead of showing scheduled backups:
