Why are some users no longer backing up on server?

I have noticed that in our users folder on our server some of the clients are backed up and others have stop backing up. The clients are still using their computers daily. How do I stop and start the sync process? Also, my laptop was never sync'd and now it is syncing; it actually appears, based on the dates, that mine is the only one syncing and backing up on the server.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I think to better answer the question, personally i’d need to know what method of back up are you using, third party program or not, and what is set to be backed up, what OS are you running on the server (is it windows server 2003? and what OS is on the clients (XP?) third party program or not, and what is set to be backed up.

=D

*************************************************
What I presume is that you are using an autobackup utility that you have scheduled for different users at different timings. If it is not happening for some clients, few things that you have to check are:
1. there is something wrong with the scheduler (or schedule utility), check the log if scheduled task actually happened or if not then what is the error it is throwing back
2. the backup utility is not functioning well, as you said some machines are synced and some are not, that means your backup software (utility) is working abruptly
3. and if all above is ok and check your network, if it is by any chance off during some hours and client machines are not able to talk to server when the backup software tries to hook to them.
4. I am sure you have not scheduled all client machines backup at the same time
5. Check the security policies for those machines that are not syncing with the backup server
