View Full Version : Clearing the log

01-27-2007, 08:42 PM
I can't seem to clear the log! I've tried select all and delete, but then the text all reappears the next time I open it. Ditto when I select Delete from the Edit menu.

I must be missing something very obvious!

I'm not sure why you'd want to clear the log, Jimper... we automatically generate a new one every run...

Oops, I see what you mean.

I didn't see it before, because none of the backups I've scheduled will run, and when I checked the log to see if it showed what was wrong, I kept getting the first backup, which I'd done manually.

So let me go to my problem with scheduled backups: I have smart backups of different volumes scheduled for every night of the week, all four weeks, at 11:55, 56, 57 and 58 PM. My Mac is scheduled to wake up at 11:54 PM.

This is my home computer, so I'm always logged in, and all the scripts are listed in the Scheduled scripts window.

The scipts work if I run them manually, but none of them run per the schedule! What am I doing wrong??

If you set a backup for a few minutes from "now" does it run?

No, it doesn't!

That's curious. What are the names of your source and destination volumes?

Sorry to be so slow in replying -- for some reason, I didn't see your last message until just now.

I saw where you were going, and you were right. I have a number of different drives and I'd been using some special characters to distinguish between them.

Iíve eliminated the special characters and things are working fine.

Many thanks!

Glad you're all set, Jimper!
