I need to create a login scipt for Windows Server 2008R2 that will do the following:

1. Check 'Date Modified' of file (c:\test.txt)
2. Compare age of that file to user's copy (c:\userfolder\test.txt)
3. If the user's copy is older, overwrite it with the newer file.

This is probably wishful thinking, but it would be great if a dialog box could pop up saying their file is being updated.
