Use Scheduled Task for SyncToy 2.1 to discontinuous network storage RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am sorry but I have absolutely no understanding of scripting and I need help with the following please.

    Currently I manually run SyncToy 2.1 to work when I have my NAS available ( switched on).  Is there a way I can use Task Scheduler to automatically run SyncToy when the NAS is available.  I appreciate that if it was always on this would be simple but I do not wish to run the NAS 24/7 for a number of reasons. but mostly the power usage for a seldom need resource.  I'm a home user syncing mainly media files for backup.

    I would really appreciate some help with this!

    As an aside, I note that it really does not pay to use SyncToy 2.1, whichever action, and to have too large a folder pair, it pays to select smaller folders than a Partition or a major folder like a complete (large) Music collection.
