I have a small batch file which xcopies some files from one folder to another which I've scheduled (via windows scheduled tasks) to run every 1 hour:
@echo off xcopy c:\foo c:\bar /E /C /F /Y
Since this is my workstation, I'm most probably doing work when the task executes, and then the black dos console window is displayed (lasts 2-3 seconds) and steals window focus.
I don't wish to see the files copied and of course the batch file does not ask for any user input. Is there a way to avoid displaying the console completely?
