Rather than try to build something using Python, why not use the free
cron tool from Cygwin (http://www.cygwin.com)?
It's pretty easy to use cron to kick off a process e.g. every 5 minutes.
The process could move files around, process data if there's data there to
process etc. - everything you've listed below would be pretty trivial to
implement using a few cron jobs.
