no, infact i find batch files a bit of pain. just want an easy scripting language that is flexiable. i will try the code suggested.
VBScript or JScript are generally less of a headache, for future reference (both are available on the majority of installations of Windows). xcopy or robocopy are probably what you need here, though, as mentioned above. [smile]
