Hello,

I've a batch file, that take a while to complete. Consists in a deletion of a directory and its files, then change of drive, and lauch a command that takes long time to accomplish its job.

@del /Q e:\Dir\subdir
@rmdir e:\Dir\subdir /s /q
@c:
@cd "C:\program files\XXX\XX"
@command.exe -h ip1 -u administrator -p password -a ipaddr:ip2 -r e:\Dir\subdir -t fullvm -M 1 > E:\Dir\log.txt

The problem, is that,  often, we accees via TS for work, and in logoff, we kill the job.

It's possible to avoid this behaviour, with a instruction in a batch file

What if you made it part of the logoff script instead of the way you're launching it now?

The part of script "command.exe -h ip1 -u administrator -p password -a ipaddr:ip2 -r e:\Dir\subdir -t fullvm -M 1", take more of 3-4 hours to complete. And often, we login and logoff...while the job is running.

can you make it a scheduled task on the computer rather then have it run in user context?

Batch file launches by means of a sheduled task, that too need a user context (administrator).

But that context will be local to the machine, not the logged in user.  You can even create a new user which will run the job locally.  The task should continue to run underneath the new user even though someone logs in.
