CRON tasks which are scheduled for the beginning of next month are getting pushed back to the following month.

There was a bug in version 3.0.2 and earlier in which some CRON tasks were disrupted by the date roll-over at the end of the month. This mainly effected months with 31 days.

This was corrected in version 3.0.3.

If you are using an older version, the best work-around is to restart Robo-FTP; do this just after midnight on the 1st. Everyime Robo-FTP is restarted, and Cron is launched, the cron scheduling is recalculated, and every task is scheduled for the next valid time slot.

Robo-FTP 3.10 and later includes a new scheduler that we recommend using (the older CRON scheduler is still supported, but may be deprecated at some point). You can access the new scheduler from the Configurator.
