    Have you used Task Scheduler to copy files from one drive to another?


    New Win10 v.1903 user with a new computer with two internal drives, C and D.

    Before experimenting with this myself, has anyone had success using task scheduler to copy a file from one internal drive to another, separate internal drive? QuickBooks doesn't appear to play nice when its data files aren't residing on the same drive as the program file, and my third-party backup service will only back up one drive on their basic service tier (and it doesn't really make sense to upgrade for a few files).

    As a workaround I thought perhaps Windows task scheduler could be used to automate the copying of the QuickBooks files from Drive C: to Drive D: so they would then be backed up.

    Has anyone successfully copied files this way across separate drives, and if so, would you be willing to share the steps you took?

    Thank you.

    :)

  2. Task scheduler

    Hi,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    What error message you're getting while using Task Scheduler?

    Suggest you try the below mentioned steps to fix any issue with corrupted system files:


    • Press CTRL+Shift+ESC to open Task Manager.

    • Click File > Run New Task

    • Make sure you have a check mark beside “Create this task with administrative privileges”

    • Type CMD

    • Type or copy/paste the following commands at the CMD prompt:

      dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth

      sfc /scannnow
    Reboot the system and check if the issue still occurs. If the problem still persist, try to check the issue by creating other User Profile to see if problem still arises.

    Hope this will address your query.

    Task Scheduler Batch file

    Hi all,

    Looking for some help.Im creating a batch file to run for different users to add a scheduled task. HOWEVER - the whole thing works great and has done for some time.But after i run the batch file on each machine (different users) i have to go into the security options and change the user the task runs in to the unique user of that machine. Is there a way to use the batch file to pull the account name of the machine (or computer name) and use that as the user the task runs in?


    Thanks =)
