Should do providing you have proper rights to server folder

Here's a decent question...

Since I'll be doing network transfers with this script I'm working on, it could take a long time for the file to transfer (may wind up being about 700mb - 1gb a night). Will AutoIt filecopy() command wait until the file is completely transferred before the next line in the script is processed??

If not, is there I can make it wait?

I don't know about filecopy(), but try the RunWait() along with XCOPY. It works well.

RunWait("xcopy \\server\path\*.something1 /z /y /e /d C:\temp", "C:\")
RunWait("xcopy \\server\path\*.something2 /z /y /e /d C:\temp", "C:\")

try this:

filecopy("\\server1\dir1\dir2\filename.ext", "\\localpath\")
while  1
sleep(10)
 if  filegetsize("\\server1\dir1\dir2\filename.ext")= filegetsize("\\localpath\dir1\dir2\filename.ext") then
   Exitloop
  Endif
wend
