    Ok here's my problem. I created a batch file that does nothing but copy a specific folder from one of our servers to another at 4:30am every day. It ran perfectly for a few weeks and I checked on it today and for the past few weeks it hasn't been running properly. If I run the batch file on its own it copies the folder fine. I deleted the task and remade it with the same result. I have made sure that the task scheduler is running and that it also has the part to enable ues of the desktop or something in Manage Computer/Services/Task Scheduler. It is set up to execute under the administrator account which is always logged into the server. I have 2 other scheduled tasks, one of which shuts an application down and the other restarts it. Both have worked fine since I sent up all the tasks. I'm at a total loss as to why it stopped working, why I can't get it to work now, and why the batch file runs fine when I execute it by myself. Any suggestions? Thanks.
