Using transfer_output_files shouldn't help, since it refers to the
transfer after successful execution.
In any case, using transfer_output_files is _HIGHLY_ discouraged, since
if Condor fails to locate the specified files after the successful
execution, that will cause it to mistakenly conclude that something is
wrong during transferring them back, which it counts as its own problem,
so it will retry to run the job.
As of Alexander Klyubin's suggestion to put when_to_transfer_output ->
on 6.4.7 it is not supported.
And finally, I would suggest to add "dir" command to your batch file,
and to check that the creation time stamp of your file is correct and is
AFTER Condor starts the job ( look at the creation time of your
I experienced the problem that on windows this timestamp is not updated
when you make a copy old file
Just a thought
