Updating my files

There are two keys to ensuring that you always have the latest revision. The first is that you ALWAYS update the same set of files. The second is that you ALWAYS work off the latest files. This means that you keep one set of master files, and make all changes to those files. Taking a set of floppies to a client's location, and installing the files to their machine, then updating the installed files is NOT a way to do this. You probably want to look into revision control products. I have even seen some web-based products. These may be ways to help you with achieving these steps.

I use RoboCopy v1.96 for replication here on our network. You can do some wonderous things with a good batch file and this handy utility. I imagine that putting copy of this on a floppy or your clients hard drive could help you out. RoboCopy can be set to mirror whole directories, only copy new files, ignore certain files or folders and much more.
You will find RoboCopy.exe in the NT Resource Kit and might even find a copy at www.microsoft.com.
Good Luck.

if you are using windows 95/98/nt/2000 you can use the briefcase program located in your start menu.

I suggest that you use ComponentSoftware RCS 2.5. It can keep track of changes in a variety of file types, including executables, and is freeware, so you will not need to purchase a license. Look for it on www.download.com. It will work on windows 9x platforms as well as NT. Hope this helps.
