Hi guys,


I have decided to use a combination of cloud backup and sync services to backup my documents, music, photos, videos, etc. As I will have to use a lot of different cloud services (and each consumes RAM and CPU), I don't want all of them to be active at the same time.


I was wondering how to automatically start one service, say dropbox, when the PC starts. It should then sync one item (say my documents) until everything is up to date. After that, it will close and another application like sugarsync will start and sync until up to date. I want to do this continuously for many applications.


I am also going to use either boxcryptor or truecrypt to encrypt my data, and I think that these encryption services must be on before the cloud services turn on.


How can I do this for Windows 7? If I need to create a .bat file for this, what's the code and how can I get it to work on startup? 


Thanks a lot :), I know that this is a tall order!
