When you start Lazy Mirror with a shortcut, from a batch file or with an external scheduler, then you can override its configuration with command line arguments. If you created a shortcut to the Lazy Mirror program, you can right click the shortcut and select Properties from the menu to gain access to the command line of Lazy Mirror. If you specify "C:\Program Files\WH\Lazy mirror\LazyMirror.exe" /START as the target for the shortcut, then Lazy Mirror will start updating the mirrors without waiting for you to press the Start button, like it normally does. If you want to schedule Lazy Mirror with an external scheduler then you can combine /START with /EXIT. Lazy Mirror will start the scan and exit when done.

The following command line options are recognized:

Command line examples

If you specify
"C:\Program Files\WH\Lazy mirror\LazyMirror.exe" /START /MINMINUTES=5 /BACKUPREGISTRY=ONCE
as the target for a Lazy Mirror shortcut in your startup folder, then Lazy Mirror will start when your Windows Shell starts, wait 5 minutes, backup your registry and start a scan. The same behavior can be achieved in the configuration dialog by checking the automatic start checkbox on the general tab sheet, specifying the minimal number of minutes on the same tab and selecting once in the Backup registry drop down box of the registry tab sheet.

If you specify
"C:\Program Files\WH\Lazy mirror\LazyMirror.exe" /START /BACKUPREGISTRY=ONLY /EXIT
as the command to run by an external schedular, then Lazy Mirror will start, create a backup of the registry and exit when it is done without updating the destinations.
