Creating scheduled task for SyncToy 2.1?
I am trying to create a scheduled task for SyncToy 2.1 using the Win 7 task scheduler and the instructions included in the Help section of Synctoy. It should be simple except it doesn't work. Everything goes well until I place the path/script in "conditions". The instructions state
Select Browse and locate the SyncToyCmd.exe.
Type "-R" in the Add Arguments textbox. –R all by itself will run all folder pairs that are active for run all. If you want to run just a single folder pair, add –R “My Pair” to the end of the command line.
Might someone have an idea about why I can't get this task to work?
I eventually discovered that I was using the wrong path for the program address I needed to enter under the "Actions" tab wile creating the task. Once I figured out how to correct my error and where to put the necessary quotation marks and check marks the task works properly. Except for the DOS window that appears while the sync is running it will do quite nicely.
