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: 

To change between Windows Tasks Scheduler and Macrium Task Scheduler select the Other Tasks menu, then select Edit Defaults and Settings. In the Reflect Defaults and settings, select Schedule.  See here

Viewing Scheduled Tasks in Macrium Reflect

Click the Create Backups tab then select the 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.

You can also view the History tab to see a complete record of events for the selected scheduled backup.

Understanding the 'Last Result' Codes. 

Note:  In addition to the codes below, the 'Last result Code' may also contain execution errors directly from Windows,  e.g., if the Reflect executable has insufficient privileges to be executed by the scheduled task user, then you may receive a 0x5  - 'Access Denied' error. . Please see here for a full list of Windows Error Codes.  

Generic Last Result Codes

0x00The last run completed without errors
0x01An error occurred during the backup or the backup was canceled. See the backup log for more information
0x02The 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.

0x103The 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.

0x52EThe scheduled task has an incorrect password
0x525The scheduled task user account cannot be found
0x522The user account doesn't have the 'Batch logon' privilege required to run scheduled tasks. See here.
