OK... Here's the deal.

I need to archive some data from the corporate nework with this contraints:

1. I have 30-40 GB of data on the coporate network.  
2. I need to archive about 1/2 of the data according to 4 different file extensions.  
3. I need to maintain the origional paths for the files.
4. I am limited to using only installed corporate software on the computer.  (Neo DVD Burn software)
5. I have about 9 GB free space on the network to potentially copy files to before burning to DVD.
6. Running Windows 2000

Can I do something with changing the archive bit to accomplish this and some kind of xcopy?

Much thanks for your help.

Obviously before you use this for the first time, you will need to ensure that you clear the archive bit on all the files:

ATTRIB -A C:\* /S
