    I have Rom manager set to run a automatic backup at 4 am. However, when i look in the restore backup folder there is no scheduled backup there. When i look in the next scheduled backup list the date has changed for the next day indicating that the previous backup completed. Any ideas what going on with this?

    It might be helpful to know what Droid you're running.

    Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app? Fixing permissions? What version are you running?

    Paid or free?

    Hopefully the fix permissions will work. :)

    i have the paid aka premium version. Also, i was just looking at some sites and noticed rom manager is only for rooted phones (which mine is). I am lookin at getting a new droid in jan or feb when the olympus comes out. Will rom manger work on a non rooted phone to at least use the clockworld recovery for backups?

    Nope. Requires root for any functionality whatsoever.

    Are you using RM only for backups?

    no i use it for just about everything it offers over the last year. What phones can you root? I know the original droid but i heard the htc droid and the droid x can also be rooted. any others?

    Rescue Squad can help you better than I can, but try this...You can flash alternate recovery towards the bottom of Rom manager and then flash regular clockwork recovery at the top of Rom manager...then try making a backup.

    I don't think you need to be running a back up every day. Just backup your phone when it is in a good state or before doing anything that might mess your phone up (modding with metamorph, applying a theme, etc)

    Stelv offers good advice, but I wanted to see what you were doing with it so I could offer alternatives.

    Clockwork backups take up a [expletive deleted] ton of space. Go see if you just plain ran out.

    There isn't an Android phone out there that hasn't been rooted in one stripe or another at this point. Andy likes to breathe free. ;)

    Oh, and ROM Manager likes to break recovery, so it's possible you don't have Clockwork at the moment. Ergo why you should reflash it.
