    I wasn’t sure if this goes in here or the scripting forum so sorry if it in the wrong place.

    I’ve enabled some wallpaper via GPO which currently reads from a UNC path on the file server.

    I now want to run a batch file to copy this file locally to all the computers / laptops so its not hammering the network with the file being open by everyone etc etc..

    I tried an xcopy command in the Machine Startup scripts part of a GPO to copy the JPEG from the file server to C:WINDOWSWebWallpaper but it aint working.

    I think this is because the Wallpaper folder was read only. I made the folder writable to the “Users” group & it worked.

    So my question is how would I use the xcopy batch file to copy the files to this folder?

    what privileges does a GPO use to run the scripts, I thought they would be admin level but obviously not.

    Is there a way to run the xcopy bat file with elevated privileges

    Or am I going about this all wrong?
