Unable To Get Deletion Task to work
Apr 23rd, 2012 at 9:18pm
Hey Gert,
I am trying to create a task that monitors a directory on a network laptop (XP Pro). When files are detected WD copies to a network folder and then deletes the source file. I do not know what I am doing wrong. I had a task like this working before but I can not get this one to work. Please advise. Thanks!

modified by Gert: removed the config file

You posted the task settings (I removed them from your post now), but did not really tell what the problem is ("what" is not working).

You talk about copying to a network folder, have you checked if it works when you run the task "normally" (NOT as a Windows Service)? See this post:

If that doesn't help, please enable "debug", run the task and when it fails again, stop the task and send (email) me a backup. See this post for details:
