I have created 2 batch files loosely based on the backup batch file here:
And scheduled them as tasks in Windows Vista to run at 3am in the morning for one user's files and 5am in the morning for another user's files. (to separate folders on a network attached drive)
Each distinct task is programmed to turn the computer on and run under user 1's credentials, and the next uses user 2's credentials.
When I run the batch file manually it runs fine, for each one - and does the back up fine.
It appears that the task is not starting correctly or running at all when the computer is turned off. They do run if the machine is on.
What am I doing wrong?
