    Edit already specified Scheduled Task

    I have been searching for a while but not getting much out of my trusty friend Google at the moment, so wondering if someone else out there might be able to share some wisdom.

    By default, Windows has a Scheduled Task under Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > SystemRestore called SR. This is set to run daily on System Startup and at Midnight however I would like it to run a little more frequently.
    Obviously I can modify this manually on the odd machine, however I want to change the settings across multiple machines through GPO.

    I know how to create a scheduled task in GPO but how to I edit the already created task under the above location?

    Any Ideas?

    Thanks James

    Would it be a problem if you just left the original task and added a new one ?

    Hi network41,

    No it wouldn't and it looks like the way I will have to go. I was just looking into ways of modifying what was there to stop any system confusion but couldn't find anything.

    I am assuming the original task was not distributed via GPO?

    No the one specified under the Task Scheduler Library > Microsoft > Windows > SystemRestore is created by Microsoft by default.
