Dear Experts,

I'm having files FTP'ed to:


As soon as they come in, I'd like to have then automatically moved (or copied + delete original) to:

C:\Program Files\MyCompany\MyOtherDir

Is there an easy way to make that happen automatically?

    I don't think I can do that, as other people will be using ftproot.  But thanks.  Any other ideas?  I'm a newbie at this type of thing, so I may be missing something obvious.

    Accepted Solution

    I would do this via a script of some kind that is triggered every so often, and moves the files ( Or copies and deletes the original )

    WSH script should be able to handle this, or even a batch file and a scheduled task.

    I hope this helps !
