The problem

It is pretty common to use a NAS, to store files on a centralized place into your network enviroment.
It is also common to map some shared folders on the NAS as local drive on the computer.

But as you will soon notice, windows is not treating it as a local drive, it recognize its files as coming from outside the trusted zone, so many warning like the following will appear:

Windows warning for remote files.


Windows warning for remote files. Windows warning for remote files.

The problem

If you want to use DeltaCopy over SSL and run it as a scheduled task, it will work perfectly when a user is logged into windows.
So if you try to run the scheduled task from the scheduled task manager, it will work!But when it will run as scheduled and no user is logged in, the DeltaCopy executable will run but nothing will be copied.
The following precess will be visible in the task manager: DeltaC.exe, ssh.exe, and rsync.exe.
To add you server to the known host list, simply test manually the connection:
ssh ServerIP -l Username -i SSHKEYS -p 22

You can connect but you are not able to access any machine on the remote network.
