[resolved] Weekly Backup Gets Scheduled on Wrong Day (3 posts)

    (To avoid confusion: This is a different problem than "Schedule time is wrong...", which I added a post to earlier today.)

    V 3.04 appears to have a bug in how it handles local times when a job is set to a "weekly" schedule.

    I'm in the Los Angeles (GMT -8) time zone, which I suspect is relevant. I suspect the time-of-day after which the problem appears (see below) varies by timezone.

    Here's what happens:

    If I specify a backup time prior to 16:00, everything works properly.

    If I specify 16:00 or later, the backup is scheduled for the day of week prior to the one I specify. So, for example, if I specify the backup should take place Wednesday at 16:05, it gets scheduled for Tuesday at 16:05. You can see the problem immediately in the "Next runtime" field.

    Let me know if you need additional information. Thanks.
