I created a Bat file that moves some files from a computer to a network location. The script runs fine if I run it manually but when I set it up as a task it fails.

MOVE /Y "\\icn10125\C$\Pictures\*.*" "L:\dept\Equipment Pictures\00-Gary In Auto Uploads"

Is L a local drive to the computer running the task or a network drive? If L is a network drive, you'll need to use the UNC Path instead.

Does the user under which you are running the task have permissions to both locations?

After changing it to a UNC path it started to work. Thanks
