    Copy file to web folder?

    Hi - hope someone can help

    I need to copy a file to a web folder every day and want to automate the task by using a scheduler to run a batch file. Is it possible to do and what commands do I need to use?

    Why don't you try Karen's Power Tools <big>Replicator</big> instead of a batch file? It's <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15>.....

    Where is the web folder?
    On a local or networked drive? On the internet?

    A quick search in the Lounge for
    <code>batch copy schedule</code>
    should bring up a few examples, such as this thread beginning with <post#=305,537>post 305,537</post: >.

    The web folder is on a company intranet site. I use http to access the folder.

    Re: Copy file to web folder?

    Can you access the folder through a normal Windows Explorer session, or do you need to use something like an FTP client to upload?

    If the former, you could probably use the batch/copy method in conjunction with a scheduler.
    If the latter, you may find something useful here.

    I can set up a connection under "My Network Places" in Windows Explorer but cannot map a drive to it. I am not sure about the ftp - will find that out.
