Windows 7: Backup and Restore not WORKING!

Backup and Restore not WORKING!

Okay, I made a back up about a month ago. I set it to backup every Monday at 1:00 AM.
But it never actually makes a backup when on schedule, only the first backup made in June actually worked. It is also messing up with the dates, it says the next backup will be
January, 30th, 1899!! I change the settings for the schedule but it never works.

Here is a screenshot :

Help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello Michael,

LOL, I've never seen having to wait for the past to backup before. Double check to make sure that your time & date and time zone is set correctly on your computer.

If that is correct, then you might see if resetting backup and restore and setting up and creating a new backup will work properly afterwards.

Hope this helps,
