What is Batch Process?

The process of executing a series of instructions in a batch file is known as a batch process. Typically, the batch process is used to execute repeatable tasks that can be tedious to do manually. For example, if you need to copy a particular folder to a backup drive at the end of the day, you would write a batch file with the necessary instructions, and the system would initiate a batch process to copy the files at the end of the day. The execution of the batch process is not limited to just Windows batch files. Any automated task that is set up to run can be considered as a batch process. This could be accomplished by an appropriate scripting language on any operating system.
