1. First do it from the command prompt until you have the exact commands.
2. Put those commands (one should suffice, + exit) in a batch file (xxxx.bat)
3. Use task scheduler to schedule that batch file once a day (you needed it automatic, you say).
- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308569 tells about the task scheduler.
- The command is something like xcopy "c:\folder\subfolder\*.*" "d:\folder\subfolder" /a
That's basic for anybody who has done MS-DOS 20 years ago (before Windows 3.0 came out). Didn't you?
Try xcopy /? for help.
Of course, there's no need to use task scheduler. You could put a programmatic shutdown command in that batchfile after the xcopy and shutdown each evening after a days work using a shortcut to that file. That's kind of automatic also, but not on a fixed time. Might be better, but you didn't specify your exact requirements for the 'automatic' part. Maybe you prefer boot time. Then put that batchfile in your startup folder.
