copy files to workgroup pc

hi there

I need to be able to to create a script to copy files from the 2003 Active Directory domain to a windows 7 PC in a separate workgroup.
Because its a workgroup PC, I will need to supply the credentials of a user account on that PC when runnnig the script.
Any idea how to do this?
thanks

Sure... setup the copy in a .bat file.
Use the scheduler service to run the .bat file, and enter the credentials there, not in the copy command.
Robocopy is your friend.

MyCopy.bat:
C:\path\robocopy.exe \\Server1\share\  D:\sharecopy\ /E /R:0 /NP > C:\Copylog.txt
Check the end of the log for the results. Look for count of Missed files.

thanks for that. I actually found an alternate way by putting a net use command in the batch file and then remove the drive mapping in the final step but robocopy would be a good option too. Cheers!
