Hello, anyone can help me create a .bat file, which will need to copy a .fdb file from a shared folder on one computer to another share on another pc over my LAN network? The .bat needs to be scheduled as well, is it best to use the windows 7 task scheduler or any specific code in the bat itself to do this?

PS. The .bat needs to be able to overwrite any existing file with same name...

Yes, the scheduler will work fine. To copy the files securely (with retries and such) I can recommend Robocopy which is available from MSDN somewhere (don't remember which SDK).


So I would also recommend Robocopy. Its included with Windows 7 so you dont have to worry about downloading a copy.

In addition, since you will be reading and writing files to remote systems, you'll most likely need to run the task as a user account that will have the appropriate permissions on the target systems.
