I created a Custom Script doing a Smart Update of the Documents folder only, tested it and it worked fine. I then Scheduled it to run at a specified time. When it ran, the script it used was the Standard Scripts/BackUp - all files, and not the Custom Script I thought I had scheduled to run. When I looked at the log, it called for the BackUp - all files script. Why is the wrong script being used? Also, although the custom script ran at the correct time, when I looked at the schedule, it said 9:30 pm, even though it ran at 12:00, the time I wanted. Is the 9:30 setting a default that appears even when the scheduled time is something else?

It sounds like you're confusing the "main window", Dasman, with the scheduled item. As the manual explains, the scheduled copy is completely independent of the settings in the main window: once scheduled, further changes to the main window doesn't change something that's already scheduled.

So, if you want to change various things about it other than the date/time of the run, delete the one that's there already, set things up in the main window, and then click "Schedule". That'll add a new copy to the list.
