    Can I schedule an RST Verify While Sleeping?

    pat100

      Hi! My RST works fine. I verify weekly via scheduling and it usually reports and fixes a few verification errors.

      I'd like this to be done while the computer (and me!) is sleeping. Is there any way to do this? Either through the RST application or through Windows Task Scheduler (How would I implement that?)

       

      I.e. Wake the computer - verify volumes - remain awake during verification - resume sleep via usual 30 minute timeout when verification is completed.

          Hi pat100,

           

          I regret to inform you that Intel Rapid Storage software does not have such feature available. It will be interesting to have this feature for future software releases but at the moment you cannot schedule verify and repair. I believe the only way to perform this task will be through windows task schedule, see below for more information:

          Thanks

          Allan.

            Thanks for the reply but I am afraid that you are mistaken* - it is possible to easily schedule Verify and repair from the utility found via the Notification Area icon. I have it scheduled for once a week and, as I said in my post, it works fine!

             

            Except that it won't carry out the scheduled Verify if the computer is sleeping. It just waits until it next starts up and then automatically starts Verifying and repairing.

             

            I know that I can use Windows Task Scheduler to wake the computer but I would like Windows Task Scheduler to run the Verify task. I don't know which component of the installed RST application to have it call. I am presuming I can use a command line string with switches but what would it be? Can you help?

             

            * Quote from RST Help "When you schedule verify and repair operations, the following conditions apply:
            ■    Valid volumes include: Recovery (continuous update mode only), RAID 0, RAID 1, RAID 5, RAID 10, and accelerated volumes." - (I have RAID 1)
