Title: Running Tasks not working
Post by PieOPah on Dec 22nd, 2009 at 11:06am
On a regular basis (once a dayish), I find that some of my tasks have stopped working. For example, I have a task which is monitoring a directory for activity. If there is no activity then I receive a mail. At some point during the day, the task will stop monitoring the directory and report 'quiet' regardless of any new files. The only way to get it working again is to stop and restart the task and it will function again as usual.

The tasks used to be scheduled, but i have now removed this believing it to be part of the problem. The tasks now run 24/7 but still keep failing. This is becoming increasingly annoying since I am receiving a lot of false negatives!

Could you possibly help?

Many thanks

Hard to tell what is happening.
Can you send me (email! not on the forum) a backup of your task:

* stop the task
* right-click it
* select "backup selected task" from the popup-menu

Please email me the ZIP (see below for my email).
