    Status of task schedule


    I use shadowspawn as a scheduled task to backup some files from my C drive. It works properly in Windows 7 but when I migrated to Windows 8.1, it's giving me an (0x8001) error code in Task Scheduler. The log file of the robocopy process itself goes through just fine though, so my files are being copied properly but I'm not sure what that error code say. The weird thing is that this only happens sometimes and not consistent. When I try to manually run the task, sometimes it gives me a successful status.

    The task just runs a batch file saved in c:\windows\system32 and the batch file includes these:

    shadowspawn C:\Users\{user folder}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{firefox profile} Q: robocopy Q:\ D:\Backup sessionstore.js /R:5 /W:15 /V /COPYALL /log:C:\robocopy_log.txt

    shadowspawn C:\Users\{user folder}\AppData\Roaming\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\{firefox profile}\bookmarkbackups Q: robocopy Q:\ D:\Backup\bookmarkbackups /R:5 /W:15 /V /COPYALL /PURGE /log+:C:\robocopy_log.txt

    shadowspawn C:\Users\{user folder}\Desktop Q: robocopy Q:\ D:\Backup\Desktop /R:5 /W:15 /V /E /DCOPYAT /COPYALL /PURGE /log+:C:\robocopy_log.txt

    What can I do to troubleshoot this further?
