Scheduled Backups
August 5, 2004 6:46 PM   Subscribe

Will I ever be able to do scheduled backups again? I'm on XP Home, and Task Scheduler seems hosed. I get the message "Unable to establish existence of the account specified" whenever I try to schedule something. MS tells me this is a known problem, resulting from the account having been renamed, and that if I restore the original name, all will be well. I have no idea what the original name could have been. Suggestions?

i'd say there's good odds on it being "Administrator" -- but what accounts have you renamed lately?

Sometimes when you rename an account it doesn't rename the profile directory. So look at the directory names in "c:\documents and settings" and if you're lucky the profile you use will have a different name than your username.
