ROBOCOPY errors on non-local drives

By larry9999 ·
I have a problem doing a nightly MIRROR of a local drive/folder to networked drives on my LAN. I have multiple PCs on the LAN and a NAS share. I am mirroring using ROBOCOPY in a BAT file with the MIR option. I can get this script to run error free by executing the BAT file at the PC in CMD mode but not when I use the Task Scheduler. My username has access to all drives and shares and serves as the LAN admin. I get ERROR 3 (0x00000003) The system cannot find the path specified. I also mirror a couple of directories from the C:\drive/folder to C:\drive/floder in the same BAT file and it works fine.
I am running VISTA SP1 on the host/local PC.

Thanks in advance.

i had this issue

I had this issue and just released i was being dense the problem i had was the profile i was using is only an system account. after the robocopy was set-up it was never used and i was trying to resolve the issue by running the system in a different account. once i released iwas in a different user account. i simply logged in with the correct account and remapped the drive and it's working now

moral of the story use log in useing the account the scheduled task is using to resolve the issue.
