Where is the data for scheduled tasks stored.  Can it be backed up and restored?

Under

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Schedule

each scheduled job creates a subkey. So export this key to a .reg file to back it up, double-click it to restore. Stop and restart the schedule service after restoring.

I cannot find the information at this key that is displayed when I use the scheduled task icon in the control panel.

is this win2000? it is isn't it?

they need to make a new section for it, and until they do, everyone has to make sure they specify it. My answer is valid for NT4. Stand by.

Yes, I should have specified Windows 2000.

ok, the tasks are now stored as .job files, and they are under <systemroot>\tasks.
