Creat script to perform a task.

I have a few simple requirements that I know can be accomplished using either VB or WSH.
I need a script to run from each workstation and perform the following:

1. Create a new folder on the server share \\student-srv1\LabBackup\<MachineName>
2. Copy of the "C:\Documents and Settings" folder and deposit this into the folder \\student-srv1\LabBackup\<MachineName>

So for example if the script were run and completed on machine named "LabPC-213":

-A folder called  "LabPC-213" would be created with the path \\student-srv1\LabBackup\LabPC-213
-The folder "Documents and Settings" from LabPC-213 would be copied into the folder LabPC-213 on \\student-srv1\LabBackup\ leaving \\student-srv1\LabBackup\LabPC-213\Documents and Settings

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I would use a batch script for this:

set dest=\\student-srv1\LabBackup\
mkdir %dest%%computername%
xcopy /E /C /Q /Y /Z /H /R "C:\Documents and Settings" %dest%

Great! I had to modify it just a bit.

 set dest=\\student-srv1\LabBackup\
mkdir %dest%%computername%
xcopy /E /C /Q /Y /Z /H /R "C:\Documents and Settings" %dest%%computername%

Open in new window

If that script worked for you why are you closing the question without awarding points? I didn't see anything in your modifications that would make any difference in how the script runs.
