Scheduled File Writing & Deleting

Jan 20, 2012 at 1:45 PM

Hi Everyone

I am a asp.net newbie and need some help. I need to create functionality where I can schedule reading/moving of a file from one folder to another and thereafter delete the original file. I am hoping the Task Scheduler is my answer, if not any pointers will be highly appreciated.

Thanx

Task Scheduler will allow you to run any executable (including the command-line) under any account on a local or remote computer. ASP.NET is a little tricky in that the run-time user has very little privileges and often cannot even create a new task. There are a number of discussions discussing this for this project.
