Micosoft Scheduled Tasks

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
I have created a .bat file that will move/copy txt files from folder to another. I want this bat file to run every 5 min. Everything I have read says that I should use Microsoft Schedule Task function. I was testing it on an older computer and I think I understand how to create a task except one part. Once the task is made and you go into the advance options under the "schedule" tab, there is the option for "Until." You can set either "Time" or "Duration." If I want it to run everyday should I put 23:55? That way it will get reset everyday?
