Hi, I need to automatically move scanned files from a folder on a MS 2003 server to a folder on a NAS box. The scanner requires software to run that cannot be installed on the NAS box.
Can this be achieved using scheduled tasks, or is there another way.

Many thanks in advance.

c:\robocopy.exe <source folder> <destination folder> /zb /move

You might need to change the location of robocopy to suit your machine, and you might need to download it off the microsoft website.

Do a robocopy /? for more info, very powerful copying/moving tool.

Sorry for the delay. Unforeseen circumstances have delayed me and kept me away from the internet. robocopy does exactly what I need so thanks for your help. And once again apologies for the delay in responding.
