Automatic file copy

Hi There,

A couple of weeks ago our company got a new phone system.  This new phone system utilises a piece of software called Callview and this basically logs all of our calls and stores them in mdb & ldb files which are constantly open by the application.

Does anyone know of any software that is preferably free (I have tries Sync toy and Vica Versa) that is able to transfer these open files to a network resource that is backed up separately.

The machine itself is running XP Pro SP3 and sits on a separate VLAN to our main network.

Alternatively if anyone knows how to schedule the service to stop at say 06:00am everyday and then restart something like 30 minutes later I would be grateful.

Thank you all in advance.

Regards.

Can think of a coupleof ways of tackling this.
1) Probably the best way to go.
        You can stop and start windows services from the command line. If you google for "Stop Windows Services From Command Line"

http://www.google.co.uk/search?hl=en&q=stop+windows+services+using+command+line&meta=&aq=2&oq=Stop+Windows+Services

        You will get lots of info on how to do this. Simply put seperate commands to stop and restart the required services into Batch command files, you can then schedule these using standard windows scheduler to stop and then restart services when you want..

2) .mdb, and .ldb look like access database files. If you can get access to them, should be possible to write a small access programme to copy the relevant tables from the running database to a seperate backup database.

1)to backup files, use DeltaCopy (http://www.aboutmyip.com/AboutMyXApp/DeltaCopy.jsp): crossplatform, rsync based, easy and free

2)to stop the services on demand you can use windows scheduler; the command you'll execute will be

net stop <service name>
net start <service name>

A full list of the exact services is found in the registry (run regedit.exe) under the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services key.

Alternatively, you can perform the stop and start using the name that is showed in the Services Control Panel applet (START->Run->services.msc) by putting the name in quotes, i.e.
net stop "<service>"
net start "<service>"

Paragon Drive Backup 9, the free version, should fix you right up.
