Is there a way to set up a database so it reads a windows directory?

Like the W:/ drive? Or have a function that moves files from W:/ to C:/?

and then have this functionality over the web?

Where do I start? I want this to be simple but all the resources I find are complex or more toward website stuff. Id like to develop the frontend with PHP and have it interact with VB as well.

Anybody with some suggestions or ideas about this? thanks.
