Thank you
We can use NET USE COMMAND to connect to a remote computer
yes but psexec should have been installed on remote machine
Thank you
Right click Command Promt and choose Run As - Administrator (local or domain)
Run the batch file from the Commnad Promt windows just open.
Thank you
but how will the networ drive get mapped

what about username and password


No need to map the network, allow permission in the server backup directory for that domain user.

Ok, what if I wanted to Sync files from a Windows PC using an FTP Network Connection that has been defined and works just fine.

I want to use that connection to SYNC to a remote server.

I'd like to create a batch file that I can add to my Task Scheduler.
