Window service question

I need to make a c# program that will do uploads and downloads at 9am
and 3PM. The server is here, so I have access to it. Do I make a
console app and schedule it as a task. Or is there a better way. Is
there some code out there already to do this. I need to be able to keep
track of the files I download and upload.

Do you need a user interface? Since you use the word "Server", I presume
your target machine is a Windows Server? I always use Windows Services if
the above first condition is false and the second true purely because
Windows Services are the right tool for this kind of job. But without the
other details it is difficult to give you advice.

You don't need a service for thi, just use the scheduler to run a console
application once at 9am and another time at 3pm.

Hi,

Certainly a console app being run by a sched job is a flexible solution. the
other could be a windows service.

Keeping a look is fairly simple, just write it to a file or dump it in the
event log
