Problem with Task Scheduler

Resolved

Likes # 0

I have created a batch file called System Backup which works fine. I have now tried to get Task Scheduler to run this batch file at 17.55 every day - I have called this job 'System Backup'. The Task Scheduler will not run the task nor does oit show it as existing, but when I try to set it up a second time, it tells me it already exists.

How can I find the existing task and edit it and any ideas why it is not running, please?

NB I had this all working very well in Windows XP, but only after doing some permission tweaking.
