Where does task scheduler store its files in windows server 2008?
Sounds like a Server Fault question to me....– Sam PrideNov 26, 2009 at 1:58
Can you tell us the actual problem? Why do you need to know where the files are? What are you actually trying to achieve?– ThatGraemeGuyNov 27, 2009 at 7:10
Task information is stored in
C:\Windows\System32\Tasks). They appear to be stored as a single file per task, in an XML type format.
They are then referenced from the registry in
I don't know about 2008, but 2003 stores them in
%WINDIR%\Tasks. If you open the properties on a scheduled task, the full path is listed right at the top of the window.
it's not there. and there's no full path listed– sedNov 26, 2009 at 2:24
They probably moved it to a "shell folder". Is there an entry for it in the registry path
\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Shell Folders(or "User Shell Folders") under local machine or current user? Have you tried searching your drive for
.jobfiles? Nov 26, 2009 at 9:22
