How to Automated SyncToy backups batch mode

As this backup job is going to be run by the user, we want to make the process as simple as possible. SyncToy has nice feature that allows it to run in batch mode by using -R switch. Open notepad and add the follow line “C:Documents and Settings<your username>Local SettingsApplication DataSyncToySyncToy.exe” -R.

You might need to double check the location of the SyncToy.exe as this varies depending on the version of Windows. Save the file with a .bat extension to the desktop. Now the user can simply double click on the batch file and SyncToy will complete backup jobs that have been defined.

Alternatively you can have Windows Task Schedule (Found in the control panel) run the batch so the whole process becomes automated.
