Script Runtime Primer
Microsoft® Windows® 2000 Scripting Guide
File system management is a key part of system administration, and yet neither Windows Script Host (WSH) nor Microsoft® Visual Basic® Scripting Edition (VBScript) provides many capabilities in that area. Fortunately, you can use the Script Runtime library to manage such key file system components as disk drives, folders, and files. In addition, the Script Runtime library provides methods for reading from and writing to text files, for creating "dictionaries" (used to manage data within a script), and for encoding scripts.
