Unable to download a snapshot file using the downloadfile command in EPM Automate when used in Task Scheduler



I have a problem with the downloadfile EPM Automate command in the below back-up script. When I run the following script manually, the snapshot file is downloaded. But when the script is run via Windows Task Scheduler, the file does not seem to be downloaded at all - no errors are returned, the script manages to log in and log out correctly, but the snapshot file is not present in the backupDirectory. 

I believe this is related to some security restriction because if I change the script so that the backupDirectory points to a directory on C drive, the snapshot file is downloaded correctly in Task Scheduler too.


Howdy, Stranger!
