I have a problem, and i can't think of a good solution.
Was hoping you clever people might..
The till systems on my island produce a report every day. a "Cap" file. A .txt file, about 200k each.
There are 7 tills. Each has it's own folder.
So every day, a new txt file is created in "Till 1" folder, "Till 2" folder etc.
These are named "20050331" (today's date, in that format).
They are saved in a protected area of a network drive.
Someone needs access to the files, but they are not to have access to the protected drive.
Is there any way of getting them over to another drive?
I was thinking something along the lines of a BAT file - that when run, copies the newest file over to a shared drive.
A bat file that could be put into the Start Up, so every morning it is run. And run on someone's computer that has access to both the protected, and shared, so they could access the files to move them.
I thought about copying *.* -> shared drive, but that would take too long (200 txt files in each folder, and growing daily!)
Is there any dos commands that could specify only the latest (which would be yesterdays) and then copy them somewhere?
Excuse me if i am talking utter codshite.
Or any other ideas you may have?
