How to create a script to run synctoy

MrWizzard asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
Currently I am using task scheduler to run synctoycmd.exe every morning at 2am to backup my stuff. It works just fine, except doing it this way does not show the "Results" page after the sync is complete. I would like to get to my computer in the morning and see the results waiting for me to review.
I think i need to write a script for this, and then point the task scheduler to the script, but dont know how to write scripts!
