    Using network hard drive for backup

    It depends what sort of backup you want to do. If you're happy just backing up regular files, then there are a bazillion (really, that many!) different bits of freeware to do that. There is a good list here:

    Download Back Up Tools for Windows - MajorGeeks

    and pretty much all of them can do network backups. Some even have fancy options like encryption. Really, the most useful thing is just being able to schedule them and know they ran OK.

    You may also want to make a system image backup too, and you'll find that software in the very same list.

    I don't have Windows 8 as yet, so I'm afraid I can't suggest any for that platform. Personally, I use Clonezilla for image backups.
     
  3. Task Scheduler Email Issue

    Not at all. I suggested in my previous note that you could schedule this AutoIt script:

    1. Take a screenshot
    2. Save it to a temporary file
    3. Generate an E-Mail
    4. Attach the screenshot
    5. Send it to its recipient
    Do you think that AutoIt is unable to execute each of these steps?

    how do I setup Windows Backup schedule for execution?

    I get the following error when trying to setup sytem backup

    Hello Dave,

    This issue occurs if the scheduled backup task is corrupt. To resolve this issue, I suggest that you follow these steps to modify the registry.

    Disclaimer: The steps below includes system registry modification. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection,
    back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs.

    Make sure to backup registry first, please refer to this support article:
    How to back up the registry in Windows. Please follow the steps below:

    1. Click on Start > type regedit and press
      Enter.
    2. Browse through the following location.

      HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\Current Version\Schedule key and then delete its subkeys.
    3. Save the changes and then exit out of the registry editor.

    Update us with results for further help.
