Want to only run SyncToy when connected to corp network RRS feed

  • Question

  • I want run synctoy as a automated, timed process. I can do this with the command line and a scheduled task. However, I only want this to run if I am connected to the corporate network (and thus have access to my backup drive). Testing for a network connection isn't sufficient since I am (almost) always on the internet. How can I test for connectivity to the corporate network share, and if I am, then lauch SyncToy? Any ideas?

  • I would also like to do this, or at least something very similar!  Rather than schedule SyncToy to try and run at the same time every day, I want it to run only if another PC on the home network is available.

    Anybody found success in this area?
