Go to Administrative Tools>Task Scheduler and expand the + sign next to Microsoft and then the same for Windows.  Look for the Backup Folder and verify there is a scheduled task in there.  If not y

Send me a PM and I can export mine and send it to you.  It's nothing but an XML file. 

Here's what mine has in the Actions tab: %windir%\System32\wbadmin.exe start backup -templateId:{50e4eff5-5931-4682-898b-e4e223066eea} -quiet

OK I tested a lot.


1. I tried the command added here by ikon but this ended up in error.

2. I tried the xml file from jmwills. Now it was getting strange. I tried to save it and it ended up in the same error message as if I tried to setup my own backup-plan.

After changing the name/title of the task I was able to save it. But it ended up in an error.

I have the fear my external drive is also an issue. It is not listed when I am doing a new backup-plan and try to use it as the target drive ...??!!!


Strange things are happening ...

I see it might lead to misunderstanding.

Import - window with settings is open - klicking on OK to close the settings is leading to the error message

I was afraid the command I posted wouldn't work. I suspect the alphabet soup part of the command is specific to each installation.

Sorry took some time but here are the error messages

in Task planner is written when I klick OK with this name "Microsoft-Windows-WindowsBackup" for the task:

"A task or folder with this name is already existing"

Changing the name is allowing the OK klick without error


in Windows Server Backup is the error message:

The settings for the planed backup was not found

jmwills, is it possible he's looking in the wrong place for the task? I can't help but think he's running into the error because the task actually does exist - he's just not seeing it.

I did a screen shot


Something strange when I am opening this is that I receive a error message

Task service is not reachable, try to reconnect


I have to click it aprox 5 times ok and then I can work with it.



to check if I am on the right way

The task which you see is the renamed xml import

OK, that seems to be the right one. It's odd that you have to click it more than once to get to it. What happens if you right-click on the task and select Run?
