i'm looking to create a (i think) very simple script, but i just started on ubuntu and haven't got a clue how to get it to work.
I have a folder which recieves new files from other parts in my network. I need to do some processing on those files but now and then something goes wrong in that process and i loose files. to be sure of my system i need to have a script which watches a directory and copies any new files in it to another directory. every file/folder just needs to be copied once (when it just got into the directory).
is there an easy way to do this?
it's on a fresh install of ubuntu server 12.04
