    Need help to finsih script?

    I have the following script below. What it odes is copy all the contents of a folder on the network to a designated folder on the client. I want to run this on a OU which contains 25 PC's so it copies the files across to the folder. What i need help with is......once the files are copied over on log in on day one I do not want them to be copied over every time the computer is restarted. Is there a way i can stop this so that the files are only copied once and the script checks this and then stops. I know i could leave it in the OU for a couple of days but what happens if i have to re-image a machine and the script is no longer in the OU?

    here is what i have so far and it does work as far as copying the contents of one folder to another.

    Const OVERWRITE_EXISTING = True
    Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
    Set objShell = CreateObject("Wscript.Shell")
    ' global variables
    source = "\\pcname\data\engl\*.*"
    dest = "c:\Program Files\myprogram\data\eng"
    objFSO.CopyFile source, dest, OVERWRITE_EXISTING
    If Err = 0 Then

    End If

    Re: Need help to finsih script?

    Code:
    If objFSO.FileExists("file to check") Then
    'File allready exists
    Else
    'Copy you files here
    End If
    Use the FileExists to check for the presence of any of the files or copy over a flag.txt and check for that.

    Or you can use FolderExists to check for the existence of a folder.
