Jean-Peer Lorenz suggests this article as an answer to your question:
FAQ #1445: “How can I schedule backups? The “schedule” tab is greyed out.”.

bronto (b-kravca) said : #4

i have this options:

a. Applications -> Accessories

and start backup manually (scheduler grayed out), i can connect to sftp location.

b. Applications -> System tools

scheduler shows up, but i can't start backup due to not being able to connect to the same sftp location.


i'd like to have:

scheduler + working sftp connection.

Unfortunately, when running sbackup configuration as user, you cannot setup scheduling.
You can, however, set it up manually. I use gnome Schedule for that (but you could also use plain crontab if you are comfortable with that). Just set the command to /usr/bin/sbackup, and the schedule to whatever you prefer (hourly, daily, weekly, or whatever).

Please refer to FAQ #1324 for setting up ssh access as root. (However, there appear to be some issues for some users with this.)

Can you help with this problem?
