Hi all,

I've a thought to create an automation file which could run specific commands (for instances delete particular file, copy file, backup file) at specific time (without 'trigger' manually). In my head, I've thought using .bat/ .ini./ exe...but don't feel right. Anyway, I would like to know if anyone got any nice thought to create such an execution.

Thanks.

I think this is what "Scheduled Tasks" does.

It's similar function as schedule task, but schedule task is quite limited and could cause quite a hastle if you need to perform many tasks.
What I'm looking for is a "automation file" which could probably perform task like clearing certain files in particular folders, overwrite an existing file with new file and etc at the time and date being set?
Any more Geek's brilliant idea??
