Does anybody have any local file search code in javascript or know where to find it? I'm creating a webpage that will search for a particular file on a local drive to determine whether or not it needs updated.

Any help would be greatly appreciated?

Don't know myself, but google turned this up. Looks like it might be something you could use.

JavaScript's security model does not allow it to access the local file system, it's not possible.

Right, that uses ActiveX, so it's limited to Windows / IE users.
