Re: deja-dup-monitor scheduled backups broken

No, the prompt check is something else (prompts user to consider making a backup, if they've never opened deja-dup).

But you said "switching to a fstab mount instead of automounting" - and that made me think deja-dup is getting confused by the switch. It's currently looking for a removable drive and it's seeing something else, I'm guessing.

So I'd say switch your backup location to "Local Folder" and navigate to the directory you've mounted?

(Fallback idea is to update to the lastest version via snap, since we've updated how we look at drives since the version you have, maybe what you're seeing is fixed there?  "snap install deja-dup --classic" will get it for you, if you have snap installed.)

The only other bug similar to this that I have found is...

I notice that that bug shows a setting...

org.gnome.DejaDup prompt-check '2015-12-05T15:00:24.595427Z'

whereas I have...

org.gnome.DejaDup prompt-check 'disabled'

Could that be the reason that the scheduled backups are failing? If so, exactly how do I get that value to be properly set?

     I have been using deja-dup 34.2-0ubuntu1.1 on Ubuntu Xenial 16.04 for a couple of years now with a extra hard drive selected as the destination for the backups of my user account from a SSD. At some point, the auto-mounting of the secondary hard drive got disturbed and deja-dup failed to perform a backup due to the backup disk not being available. I changed the mounting of the secondary hard drive to a hard mount in fstab instead of automounting. However the deja-dup-monitor still fails to execute the weekly backups despite Backups showing that the weekly backup is scheduled. Since switching to a fstab mount instead of automounting, the backup drive not available dialogs have disappeared and manually executed backups from the Backups app succeed. 
     Any idea why this the schedule backups are silently failing to be done by deja-dup-monitor? Using...

Is there some other location which holds configuration settings that I should be checking to try to figure out why the scheduled backups have stopped since deja-dup ran into the backup volume being unavailable when it was still on automounting?
