Scheduling a Script
You can use Beyond Compare's script processor to perform certain tasks, such as synchronizing folders, without interaction. For example, to automate a backup of "C:\My Folder", enter the following script commands into Notepad:
load "C:\My Folder" "C:\My Backups"
select left.newer.files left.orphan.files
Save this text file as "C:\My Scripts\Sync.txt".

We recommend including a log command in your script. If you have trouble with your script, check out the Scheduled Tasks error log: "SchedLgU.txt" in your Windows folder.
