Q: How can I publish the contents of a directory automatically?

What I want to do has 2 parts:

1) Automatically create and update a document which lists the FOLDERS on a hard drive

2) Automatically have that document publish to Google Documents or something similar (public)

END RESULT: I want to let anyone in the world know what folders are on one of my hard drives, automatically, updated at least once a day, without having to touch it. Does not need to list the individual files, just the folders. Maybe someone has an easy or elegent solution? Running Win7 Home Premium.

    https://www.dropbox.com should meet your needs. See their site for details.

    Here’s what worked: Task Scheduler running the following .BAT, and sending it to my DropBox public folder (THANKS Uber Geek!!!)

    @echo off
    time /t > time.txt
    date /t > date.txt
    copy time.txt+date.txt timedate.txt
    del time.txt
    del date.txt
    dir D:\Folder1 /b /o-d > list1.txt
    dir F:\Folder2 /b /o-d > list2.txt
    copy timedate.txt+list1.txt+list2.txt C:\DropBoxFolder
    del list*.txt
    del timedate.txt
    exit
