Windows 7: setting up a scheduled task

24 Feb 2010   #1

Windows 7 Pro 32 bit
setting up a scheduled task

I am trying to use the free program FreeFileSync to do a nightly back up of some files and have had some trouble setting up the job. The syntax for the job would be "FreeFileSync myjob.batch" run from the utilities location.
I set the trigger to 2am each day, with the action to start the program from its location with the batch job file which is located in the same folder being the argument. Under conditions tab I set it so that it will wake the computer up to run the task and set it so that if another instance is running it will run in parallel in the settings tab. With that, the task did not run - anyone know what I did wrong?

Set the task to run the executable, starting in the folder with the ffs_batch, and with the ffs_batch as the argument.
