Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try the RichCopy utility from Microsoft Technet. Another alternative is the Syncback utility from 2Brightsparks. Both utilities can be configured to run as scheduled tasks.

In the IT trenches? So am I – read my IT-Trenches blog.

Robocopy is a great utility and can be told when to start and stop as well as mirror your drives. It is in the windows 2003 server resource kit and very easy to configure as well as FREE

    If you want to autocopy the files to the target folder you can you "SyncToy" from Microsoft site. It is easy to use and can be scheduled.

    The Easiest way to do it without using a third party application is the following : 1- On the source where the (xml)files resides create a new notepad 2- type the following ( copy *.xml "The destination folder") 3- Save the notepad as a (.txt) file then change the extension from (.txt) to (.bat) 4- Start===> Setting ===>Control Panel ==> Schedule a Task to run this batch file upon your needs. Best Wishes.

    DropIt  is actually my most loved tool because it has a lot of good options and really lets you control exactly what files/folders you want to process.
