When combined with Windows Task Sceduler, these four batch files can automate regular computer maintenance tasks.
Unix administrators love cron jobs. The power to schedule tasks you would normally run manually is indeed great. Unfortunately, many Windows admins don't do the same, even though the necessary tools are included in Windows. This is perhaps due to the fact that the tool to do this included in the older NT versions of Windows server (the AT scheduler) was difficult to use and often were not reliable. Beginning with Windows 2000, a new, more robust and reliable scheduling tool was available?Windows Task Scheduler. When combined with the command line and batch files, Windows Task Schedule provides admins an effective maintenance automation tool.
