Unusual scheduled backup
I have a regularly scheduled Sunday, 2 AM weekly backup (full clone). After running this way for a few months, yesterday, it ran at 9:51 PM. I was away for the weekend, so had not noticed that it didn't run overnight. It started the backup, which completed successfully, about when I got home and started to check e-mail. Any idea why 1) the backup did not run as scheduled (the computer never sleeps, only the screen does and I was logged in and the active user) and 2) why the backup would run at a later time (no other backups were scheduled or running from 3 AM Saturday until the weekly clone backup started)?

We use the system scheduler to actually "fire", so I can't think of why it would run so many hours later (or earlier), unless there was something wacky going on with the Mac. Perhaps a restart is in order?

All times are GMT -4. The time now is 05:26 PM.
