Windows 7: Program to automatically move files as created by Fraps

Program to automatically move files as created by Fraps

Hey guys, I plan to record PC gameplay using Fraps, which creates very large files. In order for me to do so whilst still maintaining high FPS in game, I have to record to my SSD. However, this fills up very quickly.

My idea is to make a program that automatically moves the recordings over to the HDD as they are created. Fraps has an option to split the recording up into 4GB segments, so what the program will need to do is detect when the second section has been created, then move the first across, then detect when the third has been created and move the second across etc.

Is this possible in an automated fashion? And if so, how would I go about doing it?

Thanks for any replies

Ok, so I just had a quick play around with a .bat file and found that this works:

if exist "C:\Users\Max\Videos\Fraps\part2.avi" move /-y "C:\Users\Max\Videos\Fraps\part1.avi" "F:\Fraps\"
But I will need to implement it into a loop so that 'part2' and 'part1' change to 'part3' and 'part2' and so on within the code.

Also it will need to automatically check at a set frequency
