i have a shared network folder that has generated .txt files in it. I need a program/script to go to that network folder every 4 hours or so to copy the new .txt files in the shared folder and make a back up of the folder. Will need to run for weeks doing this generating a long list of these txt files. any ideas?

that what this is ;) except i have lots of random .txt files being made. Im copying the cookie folders off computers. so the xcopy command works great.

I think what Shamus really meant is in the time it took you to post you could have done it yourself... sometimes this is the case - we are just minions to feed the great beast that OSNN has become... oh dear I am getting weird again....

Shamus presented a viable option, nothing wrong with having choices :)

I just came across that article recently and have been using it since the switches that it talks about give a lot of functionality.

Overkill for what he needs? Maybe, but I have put it to good use.

Yes thats what I meant not so much feeding the threads thats cool but there are times when you need to use what is in your head not what someone else is doing for you, other wise you end up loosing whats in your head and become a slave to the all mighty god of google :lick:
