I am trying to create a scheduled task to run Robocopy on a 2003 machine. To get the program to backup the files where I want them I need have the task run robocopy /job:job /MIR.

Thanks for getting back to me so soon.

I guess it's a command line tool, it runs through the command prompt. I got it through Mircosoft to backup certain folder/files.

you can use the AT command to shcedule it in DOS....if the only command that needs to be run is "robocopy /job:job/E" then you can make that a batch file and schedule that batchfile to run...either with AT or task scheduler
