I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions as to how to schedule automatic file uploads from a file on my desktop to my sharepoint intranet site. Please let me know. Thank you.

PowerShell! PowerShell can certainly be used to upload files. And, you can just use windows task scheduler to have it run on a schedule.

    FTP? Did I miss something? The link I provided has a powershell script that uploads a doc, no ftp required.
