Server 2008 Task Scheduler items do not display while running.

Last Modified: 2012-11-28
Hello Experts,

I created a DOS batch routine that copies some files daily to an external USB hard drive on one of my Servers that is running Server 2008.

I have set up a Task in Task Scheduler to run at 4AM but I want to see the Dos batch running on the screen while it is active.

When Task Scheduler runs the batch routine it does not show the scrolling text that runs in the cmd window. I'd like to see it running just like if I manually started the dos batch routine.

How can I do this?
