All Tasks

Shows a list of all scheduled Windows tasks that trigger an execution of TreeSize.



This list shows detailed information about each task:

The current status of the task. Indicates if a task is ready to run, currently running, or disabled.

Last run result

The last status of this task. This column shows if the last execution of a task was successful, if it failed, or if it has never been executed yet.

Schedule options

The time parameters that were defined for this task. This determines when and how often it will be executed.

Command line options

Shows the command line parameters that will be used for this task.

Run as...

The account information that is used for this task. Please note: If no explicit options file is used for this task, TreeSize will use the settings of this user.
