Automatic File Copy

By rick ·
How do you automate in Win2K server a copy of a file in a private directory to a public directory every night? Both are located on the server. Want to keep permissions at both sites the same.

Automatic File Copy

by ins413 In reply to Automatic File Copy

You have two options. You can use xcopy with the /o option to keep the permissions the same. You can also look into robocopy which is a very powerful tool included in the W2K resource kit. Bot work well but I definitely prefer using robocopy. I just used it on a job recently, and moved the entire file structure from one server to another while keeping all permissions intact, and not one lost file. It is very easy to write a batch file and use task scheduler to run the batch file at any designated time.

Hope this works.
