    Task scheduler ignoring my settings


    I recently set up a NAS to use for things like backups and whatnot. Saturday afternoon I set up a task to run my file sync program for weekly at 1AM Monday morning while I am sleeping and my "normal use" programs and whatnot are not running so relevant files can be backed up. The problem tho is ever since I set the task, it has run or tried to run five times so far. Twice Saturday afternoon/evening, and three times today, Sunday, so far. I just finished deleting and re adding the task to see if it works but will need to wait to see I guess. Also I cant seem to figure out how to enable the history part for it eather. Am I missing something or is scheduler broke? This is my first time trying to do the task schedule thing. This is a desktop PC, Win10 version 1909, always on, no sleep or hybernate set up.

    :)
