Windows 8.1 Command Line Problem


  • In Windows XP I ran a batch file every day using Task Scheduler to sync a folder between a hard drive and a USB drive at a scheduled time. The batch file contained the following:  "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe" -R >> C:\Sync\Docs\Files\SyncToy\sync.log  (all on one line).  Worked perfectly.  I just switched to Windows 8.1, and I am trying to run the same script.  The task starts, the files are synced OK (I checked the log file), but the Task Status in Task Scheduler still says "Running".  I expected the status to change to "Ready".  Any thoughts?
