Hi all,

I have put together a script that will run a robocopy job, then create a log file based on the date and time the job completed. I want to know if there is a way to interigrate this log file on completion and then if there are errors send an email with the errors included. If the job has no errors then send an email with backup was successful.

Does anyone know how this could be done?

thanks

thanks, any idea how to get the below script to point a link to the latest log file rather than attach it?
 

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objFolder = objFSO.GetFolder("c:\log\")
datNewest = #1/1/1970#
For Each objFile In objFolder.Files
  If objFile.DateLastModified > datNewest Then
    datNewest = objFile.DateLastModified
    objNewest = objFile
  End If
Next
Set objEmail = CreateObject("CDO.Message")
objEmail.From = "test@test.com"
objEmail.To = "test2@test.com"
objEmail.Subject = "Backup"
objEmail.Textbody = "check the attached log file.(objNewest)" 
objEmail.AddAttachment objNewest
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") ="smtp.test.com"
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Item("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserverport") = 25 
objEmail.Configuration.Fields.Update
objEmail.Send

You mean something like this ?
objEmail.Textbody = "Check this  <a href="c:\log\(objNewest)">link</a>"
