    You could use OpalisRobot (www.jsiinc.com/catalog/opalis.htm) to monitor the
    folder and fire a bactch that copies the new file. It uses almost no resources.

    You could schedule a batch to start when the system starts. The batch to
    periodically run ROBOCOPY to synchronize the folder. Robocopy is a reskit tool,
    tip 3277 in the 'Tips & Tricks' at http://www.jsiinc.com

    You could script a batch to start when the system starts that records the state
    of the folder to a file (dir /b). It could then periodically check and copy new
    files and update the state. It could sleep (reskit) between checks.
