Default Repeating FTP every 15 minutes until hell freezes over

New to FlashFXP. I need to upload files every 15 minutes 24/7. I've got the queue file set up and have created a scheduler task. That task is set to repeat every 15 minutes.

My questions:

1) What do I set "Schedule Task:" to? One Time, Daily, etc? Or does it matter if I'm doing a repeating task?
2) Under Repeat Task, and the Until choice, what do I put there so that it keeps repeating every 15 minutes until hell freezes over?
3) I've followed the suggested method of setting up a Windows Task Scheduler task to start FlashFXP upon machine startup so that my task runs automagically upon a reboot. anything special to do here beyond that?



* FlashFXP v[ 4.2.5].[ ], build [ 1813], [x]registered, [ ]unregistered, [ ]pirated
* OS [x] Windows 7, [ ] Vista, [ ] WinXP, [ ] Other (specify)
* Running behind hardware router/firewall [x] Yes & Model [Cisco E4200], [ ] No, [ ] Not sure
* Running software firewall [ ] Yes, Name [ ], Ver. [ ], or [x] No
* Running Antivirus [x] Yes, Name [AVG ] or [ ] No

I have improved/revised this in the latest beta/current release.

"until" is now a checkbox to limit the duration and when "until" is unchecked the task runs every X minutes indefinitely.

With the latest build above you can set this as a one time event and it will repeat without problems.
(this wont work with the build you're currently using)

If you don't upgrade then you would need to set the task to run daily starting at 12:01am and running for 24 hours to work correctly.
