If a schedule setting file is corrupted, the scheduled backup task may not run or could remain undeleted from the console. The schedule setting file is temporarily stored in memory and flushed to the file when the service stops or the OS restarts to record changes. However, in situations of low memory or heavy OS load, the flushed changes may not be accurately written to the file, leading to potential corruption of the schedule file.

If you see a listed schedule, delete it, and create a new one.
