I have looked at just about every posting I can find in relation to this topic and tried every solution out there to no avail. Scheduling a backup or pressing Backup Now does nothing other than to tell me I have a backup "scheduled".
The site is self hosted on IIS (windows 8.1 Pro box). We are using WordPress to document the birth and growing up of our Son so he can look back in years to come. WordPress and everything else runs okay and I can schedule a post.
I have added define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true); to wp-config.php - nothing. I have made registry changes to Windows 8.1 to allow loop backs - nothing. No other plug ins installed other than Updraft Plus.
Strangely though, fully restarting the host box initiates the last requested backup? If I try to back up again, nothing?
Very frustrating as I installed Updraft Plus as a trial with the intention to upgrade and pay for more "add ons". Which I still intend to do, but I need to be confident it will work.
Help and advise please?
