HI All,

Know this is a simple request looked online didn't see a direct answer, tried xcopy and robocopy, didnt work. Need a startup script to run and delete a folder and contents on users local machine and then copy a folder and contents from a network location.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You might have to tweak this a bit, but here is the basic shell.

sRemoveDir = "c:\dir1"
sCopyDir = "\\sharename\dir3"
sDestDir = "c:\dir2"

Set oFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If oFSO.FolderExists(sRemoveDir) Then
   oFSO.DeleteFolder sRemoveDir
End If

If oFSO.FolderExists(sCopyDir) Then
   oFSO.CopyFolder sCopyDir, sDestDir
End If
