Keith Brown just pointed me to schtasks, the new (as of XP, apparently)
command-line task scheduler. It’s the replacement for the venerable at command,
and running schtasks /? from the command
line shows that it has a boatload of
options. Including the abilities to run the tasks under arbitrary credentials and
to terminate tasks at a specific time. Cool.
I’ve been meaning to get my backup story whipped into shape…this
may be just the ticket.
