Ahh, I see where you're getting confused. You don't have to schedule a task to run shadowspawn if you don't want to. You can just put your command in a regular text file, save it as a batch (.bat) file and then double click to run it whenever you feel like doing a backup.
Your code could just have:
shadowspawn C:\Source\ Q: Robocopy Q:\ G:\Destination\ /V /MIR /TEE /ETA /LOG+:G:\BackupLog.txt
Once you have that saved as a .bat file (ie backup.bat) then you could just double click on it and have it work. Be sure to make your ShadowSpawn.exe globally accessible by placing the executable in your C:\Windows\System32\ folder. Then you can call shadowspawn from anywhere.
If you have any questions feel free to ask. Good luck! Edited by GasMan320 - 11/12/11 at 3:46pm
