I'd like to somehow schedule a file (access database .mdb file) to be copied from a network share to a local folder on the C drive.  I want this to copy to run on a regular basis (possibly every day, or perhaps each time a user logs in), so that the copy is relatively current.

The network share is restricted to only certain users, so a user does need to be logged in (or identified) in order to copy the access db.

We are working with all Windows systems.  The local systems are all running Windows XP SP3.  Users log in with domain accounts.

I'm not sure how to setup something to run on a regular basis for this purpose.  Any suggestions would be welcome!
