This answer is not going to be something you like.  bfloeagle

Windows scheduled tasks don't exist in wine.  There are a lot of good reasons.   Most items that need scheduled tasks would also need running as root breaching the rule never run wine as root.  Running a backup program at times will require root.

Answer don't use 2BrightSparks SyncBackPro.   Instead use something native Linux.  Or at least nativish like.  http://www.areca-backup.org/  areca does not pick up permissions. There are other backup solutions for Linux that will.

Basically some things wine is not suitable for.  One of those things is backup software.
