Make sure the necessary services are started


You try to clone a disk in Acronis True Image. Operation fails with the following error:

Failed to create the scheduled task


The likely cause is that the Acronis Scheduler2 service and/or processes are not running properly. This service is responsible for executing tasks. 


Make sure the two following services are started and their Startup type is set to Automatic:

  • Acronis Scheduler2 service
  • Remote Procedure Call (RPC)
