I need to be able to take files that have not been used in 30 days and move them to a different folder in which users do not have access.  The users need access to them until that point.  I do not want to have to do this manually everyday. I'm running 2k server.

Thanks

you may build a robot like the ones I make, who every day searches in the relevant places for "too old" files (if atime() is available on NT), then moves them to the repository.
basically, it's 20 lines of Delphi code and a timer 8-))

every bit of "the" solution is in my comment :
-use atime() = access time (works only on non-FAT16 volumes)
-use a timer (to perdiodically trigger the operation)
-operation : search for not-accessed-since-30-days files and move them.

as easy as this.
