Crontab for Windows #iLoveScripting


While working on one of my project, I required to take backup of all the work which I have completed coz workplace is shared among many developers.
     So being a Linux person, I was looking for something simple like Crontab but ended with Windows Task Scheduler. 

Tool is simple but not as Linux Crontab But it did the work asked by me :-)

How to Use Task Scheduler - 

  • Login with Admin privilege user account  
  • Open Run and "Taskschd.msc"
  •  Or  Go to Start --> Control Panel --> System and Maintenance --> Administrative Tools --> Task Scheduler
  • Click on "Create Task" on right hand side
  • This will open a Wizard to create Task
  • Fill the Task Name, Owner, Privilege and Configured for as below - 
  • Now, Click on Next Tab - Trigger, Here you have to define the time when you want to execute the program
  • You can fill the different Setting to customize your schedule.
  • Now, Click on "Action Tab"
  • In this tab, you have to define the action, such as when triggered what program/script should be execute
  • Click OK
