Completes the job. The downloaded files are not available to you until you use this switch. Use this switch after the job moves to the transferred state. Otherwise, only those files that have been successfully transferred are available.


bitsadmin /complete <Job>





The job's display name or GUID


When the state of the job is TRANSFERRED, BITS has successfully transferred all files in the job. However, the files are not available until you use the /complete switch. If multiple jobs use myDownloadJob as their name, you must replace myDownloadJob with the job's GUID to uniquely identify the job.

C:\>bitsadmin /complete myDownloadJob
