Script to copy database

P: n/a
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!
