Hi Guys,
I would like to know if you know how I could setup something to automatically copy all the files in a folder from the client to a server drive when a user logs out.

Many Thanks!

What you want is a logoff script. These can be done using the group policy manager in MMC. Please let me know if you need help writing a script (I am assuming you can write a copy script). There are two versions of group poilicy management, local and domain (AD). I will go over the local for simplicity.

Start>Run "mmc"
hit ctrl + m to add a snap-in

On the "standalone" tab select "Add" and add the "group policy management" snap-in.

hit finish and then close

go into "local computer policy" and then "user configuration" and then "Windows settings" and then "Scripts (logon/logoff)"

select "logoff" on the right window and then select the "Add" button to locate the script.

This can also be applied to a domain (AD) if using a server and select AD instead of local computer policy.

Hope this helps.
