Backup does not run; change to backup config produces error

I just upgraded to Windows 10.  As a part of that process I had to create a new account and eM Client is running in the new account.  Since then, the eM Client backup has not run successfully.  When I attempt to change the configuration for backup (Tools>Settings>General>Backup), an error message is displayed that states:
“eM Client backup task edit failed due to the following reason: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)).”

See also screenshot below.  Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

identical issue

I found the root of the problem and fixed it.  The entry in Task Scheduler that triggers the backup to occur each night had incorrect paths specified.  I had created a new user account and began using eM Client within that account.  The entry in Task Scheduler was pointing to the old folders associated with the previous account; not the new folders for the new account.

To fix the problem, I edited the “Action” for the eM Client backup entry.  More specifically, the arguments for action is where the paths are specified.  See the sample below.

-backup -databasedir “C:\Users\dongo\AppData\Roaming\eM Client” -backupdir “C:\Users\dongo\Documents\eM Client” -preserve 2  -instanceString “eM_Client_C__Users_dongo_AppData_Roaming_eM_Client_” –silence

Here’s a screen shot that shows how to find the arguments:
