Task Scheduler Run with Highest Privileges


Ticking the box on task scheduler to run the task with highest privileges is like running the script or task at an elevated command prompt.

Some task like disabling network interface card, will need to set the task at highest privilege.

So if you want to automate or set a task scheduler disabling and enabling a network interface card this type of task will need to set the scheduler to run with highest privileges.

How to know whether you need to tick or run with highest privileges?

If the batch file or script runs normally at a command prompt but if you set at task scheduler it does not work as expected and the result is 0X1.

Then try to set the scheduler to run at highest privileges.

If still does not work,then could be some other issues which need Google time..LOL..you need to troubleshoot and check whether commands that you set on the script or batch file can be automated.

Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No need to install the resource kit tool if the operating system is Windows 7 or newer version.

Copy files with selected file extension using PowerShell and Robocopy:

$extension = ('.pdf', '.jpg', '.txt')

WMIC get computer name

WMIC get computer model, manufacturer, computer name and  username.
WMIC is a command-line tool and that can generate information about computer model, its manufacturer, its username and other informations depending on the parameters provided.
Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
