Hi Team,
I have few robocopy scripts to run everyday. What is the best and effective way to automate.
I tried with Task Scheduler (Windows 2008) with making a .BAT file, but it's not running properly. Sometimes Jobs are skipping. What would be the best way to automate and monitor if fails.  Thank you

sometimes there are some problems with privileges on tasks folder. my solution is:

Start - Run - CMD - C:/windows - CACLS TASKS /E /G builtin\administrators:F

Open in new window


The steps above grant Administrators group full control permission to the C:\WINDOWS\Tasks folder.

Server was busy during the time so not getting enough resources to handle the job and it says exceeded quota. By segregating the jobs in different times, Now all the Jobs are running. no skip. Thank you.
