¿I want to write a batch file that would copy a  .bak file  to a folder on a shared drive.
The code I tried is attached. I set it up to run in task scheduler. I get a success message, however nothing happens.
How can I edit this code to it will run correctly?

BTW- I use the  correct IP address in the code    Thanks
copy "F:\SharepointBackups\TESTcontentschedule.bak" "\\IPaddress\shared$\Backups\Sharepoint"

make sure you saved the password for the remote host
or add
net use \\192.168.1.199 /user:administrator passwd_of_admin

You may use attached exe... I have been using it for years for synchronizing two folders on network.
But read its help by typing
SYNC /? when u are in its directory on command prompt.
 sync.exe

Thanks. Concerns me to send my admin password in open text like that. Is there another way?

How would I save the password for the remote host instead?

no need to add in the batch file
run net use /persistent:yes once on your machine

Thanks. I'll test that. Run 1X in the cmd prompt. Correct?

Is there a way to encrypt the password?

run it in cmd prompt

net use  \\192.168.1.199  /user:administrator  /persistent:yes

you will be prompted for the password

no way to encrypt the password in the batch file as far as I know.

For encryption you can make an Autohotkey script and compile it with a password phrase to make an .exe file that's difficult to decompile :

run, "net use \\ipaddr\sharedir /user:administrator passwd /persistent:yes"

download from www.autohotkey.com
