Dropbox bucket empty - assets not saving

Hi Have successfully set up Runway for Dropbox backup. All working as expected except no assets are saving. Dropbox receives sql file fine. I have set Options for db and assets backup. When viewing Assets in Perch admin the 'backup' bucket is empty. Resources folder permissions seem fine, Perch is happy saving assets normally.

Any suggestion as to how to solve appreciated. Thanks

How often is your task scheduler running, and how long has it been since you enabled this backup plan?

Thanks for coming back so quickly. Have installed Runway to familiarise myself with what it offers over Perch. I'm backing up manually as a test, no task schedule set up.

Assets will only back up on the schedule. If you tried to push all your assets to a remote server in one go, that wouldn't end well. It does them bit by bit each time the scheduler runs.

Ok thanks, didn't realise that.
