SyncToyCmd.exe CMD window pop up RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I setup in Schendule Task in as specified to RUN box "C:\Program Files\SyncToy 2.1\SyncToyCmd.exe" –R , the task is running every hour and it is annoying that the DOS CMD window pops up all the time.  Is there a way to run this Schedule in the background, so my clients do not see the CMD window pop up?

    Thanks

    Jeff

  • Hi Jeff,
            I am sorry, either SyncToy or Task scheduler could not help to hide the pop up command window. But you can use some workaround to achieve this. Some customers had this problem too, they shared a solution here http://www.zxian.org/2009/01/08/hiding-microsoft-synctoycmd-for-backups/ . You can have a try with it.

  • Try this: http://andresantanna.webs.com/downloads/

    It hides the console and detect if the destinations is available before sync.

  • To avoid the taskeng.exe window from popping up ever time the scheduler runs SyncToyCmd, I use a script. I created the following script in notepad and then saved is as SyncToy.vbs and then get Task Scheduler to run that instead:

    ‘ SyncToy Scheduler
    Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject(“WScript.Shell”)
    WshShell.Run “”"C:Program FilesSyncToy 2.1SyncToyCmd.exe”" -R” ,7

    The ‘,7′ will start the taskeng.exe window minimised, to hide the window completely it can be changed to ‘,0′
