i have a bat file that i am using for basic monitoring. i have it run every 30 minutes in task scheduler. I finally got it to where it runs but it quits early. i dont know why. Code below. Any help is welcome.
@echo off
where /r E:\ psql > text.txt
where /r D:\ psql >> text.txt
where /r F:\ psql >> text.txt
where /r C:\ psql >> text.txt
for /F "tokens=1,2* delims=," %%i in (text.txt) do (
set PGdrive=%%~di
set PGpath=%%~pi)
del text.txt
cd %PGdrive%%PGpath%
FOR /F "tokens=*" %%i in ('psql -U postgres -q -t  -c "select count from table" DBNAME) DO set count=%%i
IF !count! NEQ 0 (
echo "Something went wrong in the last 30 minutes." > C:\batchfiles\results2.txt
where /r E:\ > text.txt
where /r D:\ >> text.txt
where /r F:\ >> text.txt
where /r C:\ >> text.txt
for /F "tokens=1,2* delims=," %%i in (text.txt) do (
set windrive=%%~di
set winpath=%%~pi)
del text.txt
cd !windrive!!winpath!echo option batch abort > winscpcmd.txt

Look at some suggestions here: windows - How can I debug a .BAT script? - Stack Overflow

Basically, to test it out, remove the ECHO OFF and carefully watch the output to see which line ran and which one was skipped. Windows has the /Y on cmd.exe to step though bat files that would have been THE perfect option for this, but was "wisely" removed from Windows.
