Running a script as a Backup User account

Recommended Posts


Here's the situation. We use a basic batch file for backing up information on our network. This batch file uses robocopy for the file copies, which also allows for reporting errors during the copy process. If it finds any errors, it calls a couple of AutoIT scripts to write the error number, as well as a shortlist of what each error level means. The problem I am having is that the system the backup is run from, when using a Backup User account, will not get past writing the message body. I believe this is due to a user permissions issue in Windows, as it works fine when using an Administrator account.

I do not encrypt / password protect my scripts when they are compiled, would this possibly help?

Or might I be better off simply scrapping the batch file(s) and packing the whole thing into an AutoIT script?
