I need to create some form of automated script to copy images from a folder on a windows server to and ftp site. Now I have a script to deal with the FTP side of things, but the bit I need help with is automating the file copy bit so it on copies the files that are newly that week.

I would really appreciate any help with this.

    Hi nmmhelpdesk,

    You could solve it like this:
    Use FTP Driver to map a drive to your ftp path:

    Use copy script, or e.g. Microsoft SyncToy to contribute new files to the destination.

    I use the above solution to backup a local folder to a ftp-server.

    Kind regards
