Notifications

I'm having the same issue with 3.6.1 (v124) while still on Catalina 10.15.7. I have mine set to backup to an ext. SSD for Thursday/Sunday copies. It nails the Thursday copies but always miss fires on the Sunday copy, and on the desktop when I log in it shows the message bar of SD notifications (5 this morning) but it doesn't allow me to see what those notifications are. This was never a problem until the last 3-6 mos. I would guess. I don't see a check box to select/unselect as noted above. I can still perform a manual backup.

If you open Window > Scheduled Copies, select the "misfired" schedule and click Copy Now in the window, what happens?

That would definitely suggest the drive isn't there when the copy runs. If you double-click that entry in the scheduled copies window, is "Show error..." checked?

Same issue

I stopped obtaining scheduled bi-weekly backups on Th and Su (usually missing Su backup) over the past several weeks. Running Catalina 10.15.7. I even downgraded SD to what had been a previously reliable version 3.3.1 (v. 121) and yet this morning there was no copy and no error message displayed on desktop. It will allow for manual backups (running one at present). Using an ext. SSD for backup. No issues with TM backing up to same drive under a separate partition.

Yep, "Show error..." is clicked. New change is that it missed today's copy.

And if you set it to run a few minutes from "now" and watch, what happens? It sounds like it's not waking, or staying awake, even though we've asked it to do so...

I'll give it a shot in a moment or two. Performing iPhone 6Plus (old school) backup at present.

It starts the scheduled run with the computer being in an awake state. Energy Saver options in System Preferences are all checked.

OK. We definitely schedule a wake event. And we can see here that it does run. So that suggests your Mac may not be waking? Or are you saying it never sleeps? Because if the options are "all checked", that means it won't sleep (since the first option is "prevent sleep")...

I unchecked "Put to sleep when possible". We'll see if it makes a difference. I hadn't changed any setting in System Prefs for years.

Are you forcing the system to sleep - using a hot corner or anything like that?

Nope. Nothing had changed with OS, SD, or settings prior to this having started a couple mos. back now (so it seems).

How about if you set your schedule to run a few minutes from now, then select sleep (not a hot corner, a command). Does it wake and run while you're watching?
