Script to copy database

I'm new at this and would like to know how set up a script to copy a
database from a local computer to a network at a certain time everyday.
Should be simple enough, but, as of now I am unfamiliar with how to do this.
Would this be done by writing a script and setting up a scheduled task to
run the script? Can anyone help me with the script? Just need it to copy
an Access database from the local C: drive to a network F: drive.

Thanks,
Tony

As you wrote about c: and f:, I imagine you are working under Windows.
IMHO you dont need Python for that.
Unless you need error handling, reporting, etc.

Bat scripts only go so far.

You could use Python's shutil module too!

I'm a newbie to script writing. I'm trying to write a script to copy all data from a table to the same table in a 2nd database. Both databases are on the same server and are identical in design. I can do this with DTS but wanted a script I could email to a user to run in Query Analyzer. Example: Copy entire table called 'Customers' in the 'Data01' database to table 'Customers' in the 'Data02' database I want to overwrite all data...

I've been trying to get the scripts posted earlier to the group by Clay Beatty to work properly. Using the three components he posted, I have managed to get a new SP generated.

Has anyone run into something like this before? Or used the scripts I...

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
