Problem: I have created a batch file to run a copy job between a FTP site via WebDrive and a local hard drive. When I ran it locally, everything works just fine. However, when the batch file is initialized through a job scheduler, the mapped WebDrive is considered an invalid drive specification. Is there a solution or work around for this?

Answer: You'll need to set up the Scheduled Job so that it runs under the context of a user account that has defined the WebDrive sites. Also, in your batch file, add a line at the beginning to manually map the WebDrive.

There is a section in the WebDrive Help File outlining batch files and manually mapping drives from the command line.
