Lightbulb Command Prompt

Is there a way with command prompt or a .bat file to automaticly look at two directories with exactly the same files and the find out which out of the two is newest??? then copy the new file into the other directory.
Basicly syncronise the folders.

Do you have to use the command prompt? I suppose that you can create a batch file to do this for you. I've written a few for backup redundancy that I've given to a couple of clients in the past. I don't usually give my stuff out though unless I'm the one supporting it.
Give this a try

Sure, most FTP clients have a built-in Sync scheduler. I use WS_FTP. I don't use the sync manager, but it's definatly there.
