Windows 7 Group Policy - Run a script when group policy applies outside of logon/logoff scripts
Posted on 2013-05-22
I have a VbScript that I want to run periodically whilst a user is logged onto their Windows 7 machine. The script backs up a file which is user specific to a directory on the network which is also user specific (although the user does have full access to both locations).
So I have this script running at logoff; however, our users have a tendancy to log onto multiple machines simultaneously, thus this is not always the perfect solution as this file is required to be up-to-date when the user logs onto another machine. As group policy re-applies approximately every 180mins (I believe), I would like to run this script to back up this file.
Is there a section in Group Policy that will allow me to have this script run when Group Policy applies?
**Note: I am trying to avoid using task scheduler due to problems in consistancy we have had with it in the past.
Hope someone can help.
