I have a DOS based machine that measures the weight of a product, stores it in memory and then writes data to a text file every 2 hours. I want to setup a scheduled batch file that copies this text file via FTP to a location on a network dive and automatically adds a date stamp to the end of the file.
The location of the text file is: ftp://10.X.X.X/STATEX/statex.txt
Example of where I would like the file FTPed/copied: //server/share/statex.txt
Can the file be date stamped similar to this syntax: /statex12-11-2008.txt?
I would like to run this batch file every 12-24 hours...do you recommend I just setup a simple scheduled task to run from the domain controller?
Thanks ALOT for your help!
