I’m using the data scraping tool to pull a LOT of details from a sharepoint site, using a Virtual Machine. There are thousands of pages so I’ve set the number of items to 0 (to pull all).
I then set it running and leave it. When I go back the process has stopped and the VM screen has generally locked (I think this is because the data scraping is a single activity that has no ‘moving parts’ so windows/VM times out goes to sleep and locks the screen.
You can’t get the data scraping tool to do something between pages (as far as I’m aware) so what’s the best way to stop the VM from locking out? I understand this may be more of a VM ware (Team Viewer) or Windows question but it may be relevent for other long running processes that you are running on remote machines just wondering what I should be doing in this situation.
Actually, looks like someone had a similar issue
