Hi,
  I currently have .BAT files (that run at scheduled time in Task Scheduler) and they backs up files and folders from the Server to the shared folder off the workstation PC. I have five .BAT files like below.

   Monday.bat
    Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Mon\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0

  Tuesday.bat
    Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Tue\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0

  Friday.bat
    Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Fri\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0

  I like to be able to combine all these batch files into one by writing a script like below and have just one in TaskSchd.msc.

  If today is Monday then
    Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Mon\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0
  else if today is Tuesday then
      Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Tue\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0
   else if today is Friday
    Robocopy C:\Data      \\frontdesk2\ServerBackup\Fri\Data            /MIR /W:0 /R:0
endif

Is it possible?
