Create a batch file to do the copy and leave it at that for the batch file.
Then use Windows Scheduler to run the batch file according to your timing.
Done.

Try this:

copy X:\Temp\File C:\Temp\File

Save the code above in a file with .bat extension.

I used to create that kind of batch file before with Windows NT.
But now I don't remember how to specify dates and time.
Please give me some examples.
Thank You

Scheduler will work better now (that is, Vista, vs NT4). System Tools -> Task Scheduler and follow the wizard.

Hi Dougquaq,
