    Works for me. 3:00 am every morning. I have upgraded from the free version, but it was working for several days with the free version before I upgraded.

    3 AM for me also. Use Filez or a similar pgm to check the properties of the backed up files. You'll see more accurately if it worked.

    If you've got it to backup at 3am the BB screen should indicate Last Backup: 2/11/03 3:00am correct?

    AutoSync is set to sync at 9:00AM and it works like a charm its just the card backup that doesn't appear to be working.

    Yes but Filez doesn't do it for files on the card (sorry). I use McFile (properties) and it shows new "DateCreated" & "DateAccessed" which is the date/time of the last backup. The "DateModified" will be the first backup date.

    After a restore BB doesn't always copy BB VFS to the RAM which results in the scheduled feature not working. Once I copied it from my card to the RAM it worked fine. Found the FAQ on their site.

    I have autosync schduled to kick in at 9am each day and BB VFS scheduled at 4pm.

    Now that I feel safe I'll probably drop it on the icy pavement tonight. :anger
