Windows 7: Logoff script timeout?

Logoff script timeout?

Just wondering if anyone has come across this before.

As part of our logoff script we run a backup application to backup users data to the network. In XP we never had a problem, in Windows 7 a few power users have come across a problem. If they have lots of data that's changed, when the script runs (runs an application called SyncbackSE), while it runs fine, if it gets to 10 minutes and it is still running, then windows (I'm presuming it's windows doing this) just stops it running and finishes the logging off of the user without finishing the back. Is there somewhere that this can checked/set?

Thanks

I seen that thread, that's dealing with a script running before logoff, where as my script is a logoff script that's called by Windows and is effectively run as part of the logoff.

The script is actually an EXE that checks settings and runs an application called SyncbackSE to do the backup.

Are you doing this via GPO logoff script?

Logoff script not running at shutdown
I have a script that launches Ccleaner and needs to run at shutdown. Shutdown scripts do not run within the user space as I understand, so I figured I'd use a logoff script which will run while the user is still logged in. The logoff script works when logging off as expected, but does not run...
