I'm running Windows 2003 SBS std and a second windows 2003 server. What I need to do is to make a copy of a file on the one server and copy it to the SBS server. Is there a way to do this automatically in the middle of the night so that no one is in the file when it is copied?

you could create a batch file on server 1 with the following

copy /-Y "c:\folder where file is\file name" \\otherserver\sharedfolder


the /-Y will make it automatically overwrite the file if it exists...if you're not wanting it to do that...just take that switch out

then just schedule that batch file with task scheduler...and you should be good to go
