Having spent the last decade primarily on Linux systems, my Windows knowledge is a bit rusty, and I am out looking things up as well as asking here. Also, I am not looking for a discussion, but, instead, an answer indicating best practice.
Does scheduling a task in Windows infer the same kind of process as cron in Linux? That is, I am assuming a Windows scheduled tasks works without a user being logged in?
Is Windows 2003 Task Scheduler the preferred way to schedule a task?
If Task Scheduler is not the right thing, what is another preferred way?
The task I want to schedule is pscp.exe to grab a file on a SAMBA share and send it to a vendor on a daily basis.
