NTBackup does not start on schedule

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
On Xp Ntbackup is configured to run a complete backup on a daily basis. Destination is a USB drive shared on the network

Manual backups work perfectly, but the scheduler, set for daily, normal, replace and with good credentials does not start. (Credentials are Administrator).

Nothing in the Apllication, security or system logs.

Stumped at what to look at next???
