I need to check a the modified date on a local XML file and if changed from last check then upload the file to an FTP site. I have tried a few applications to handle this but the applications are just not able to reliably run the routine 24/7 without crashing or running into various issues that require I babysit it more than I care to. I currently have an application checking the modified date every 3 minutes and uploading if changed. My initial requirement was for the application to run as a service since I host it on a server and did not want to require desktop load. However, I am okay now with just a running script that auto launches on login. Again, just looking for something reliable and I wonder if a script would make more sense and be reliable.
