Scheduled Task won't work after password change




I have a Scheduled task that backs up my database. I runs once a day.
Once a month I am prompted to change my password and then the
Scheduled task stops working because it now has my old password...

Without having to explicitly edit the Scheduled Task. how can I avoid
this problem?

I am the admin on this computer and I am also experienced with .Net
and C#.

Hello (e-mail address removed),

On the admin account properties set the "Password never expires" option.

BTW, an account for this kind of tasks, shouldn't be the admin account. Create
a normal user account, which will get only the needed "Security options"
with a GPO.

Best regards
