    Batch File Help


    I'll be the first to say that I have never made a batch file. I've seen them and even ran them, but never made one. What I would like to do is at 9:00 P.M. copy files from one drive to another drive. And have this process repeat it's self daily. I know that I can put this schedule inside of task scheduler for the times and stuff, but I need the batch files to do it. Would anyone be interested in helping?
    Thanks
    Dan

    Don't use batch files very much but one I find useful is for creating a list of files in a directory.
    Just copy the text below into Notepad and save as Filelist.bat

    dir /a /-p /o:gen >filelist.txt

    When you run it from a folder it will create a Filelist.txt file,in the same folder, that lists all the files in that folder.Useful when you are too lazy to type all the files out yourself.

    need batch file help

    I think you can just use the "Call" command in your batch file.
    The batch file should delay execution until the call command finishes.

    Call myprogram.exe
    Call mysecondprogram.exe

    Haven't done much batch coding lately *Smile Batch File Help :)
