Directory retreival woes

3 posts in this topic

Hi All,

I'm trying to make a script up for work, basically its function is to backup certain directories from a PC. I'm hitting a brick wall where I've used the FileFindFirstFile and FileFindNextFile functions respectively, and I can pull an entire list of all the files on the root of c:, yet if I do something like this...

While 1 == 1
        $Counter = $Counter + 1
        $AdvancedCFiles[$Counter] = FileFindNextFile($FilesToFind)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        If Not $AdvancedCFiles[$Counter] = "Windows" OR "Program Files" OR "Documents and Settings" Then
            $AdvancedCFilesSize[$Counter] = Round(DirGetSize("c:\" & $AdvancedCFiles[$Counter]) / 1024 / 1024 )
            $AdvancedCFilesSize[$Counter] = $AdvancedCFilesSize[$Counter] & " MB"
            $AdvancedCFilesModified[$Counter] = FileGetTime("c:\" & $AdvancedCFiles[$Counter])
            GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($AdvancedCFiles[$Counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesSize[$Counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesModified[$Counter], $Treeview1)
        EndIf
        $Counter = $Counter + 1
    WEnd

Then it won't pull the directory listing at all. I've got no idea with this one....any ideas anyone?

Mhh. Maybe this is the sort of thing you want, but you need to do some homework :)

FileChangeDir("\");set the drive maybe?
$FilesToFind = FileFindFirstFile("*.*")
$counter = 0

;ConsoleWrite(@WorkingDir & @CRLF)
Dim $AdvancedCFilesModified[5], $AdvancedCFiles[5], $AdvancedCFilesSize[5], $AdvancedCFilesModified[5]
While 1 
    $res = FileFindNextFile($FilesToFind)
    If @error Then ExitLoop
    If stringinstr(FileGetAttrib($res),'D') Then ;if it's a folder
    If $res <> @WindowsDir And $res <> @ProgramFilesDir And $res <> @MyDocumentsDir And $res <> @DocumentsCommonDir Then
    ;make sure array i sbig enough to add another result
    If UBound($AdvancedCFilesModified) < $counter + 1 Then
    ReDim $AdvancedCFilesModified[$counter + 2]
    ReDim $AdvancedCFilesSize[$counter + 2]
    ReDim $AdvancedCFilesModified[$counter + 2]
                ReDim $AdvancedCFiles[$counter + 2]
    EndIf

    $AdvancedCFiles[$counter] = $res
    $AdvancedCFilesSize[$counter] = Round(DirGetSize("c:\" & $AdvancedCFiles[$counter]) / 1024 / 1024)
    $AdvancedCFilesSize[$counter] = $AdvancedCFilesSize[$counter] & " MB"
    $AdvancedCFilesModified[$counter] = FileGetTime("c:\" & $AdvancedCFiles[$counter]) 
    
    ;for you to use
    ;GUICtrlCreateListViewItem($AdvancedCFiles[$Counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesSize[$Counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesModified[$Counter], $Treeview1)
    
    ;for me to test
    ConsoleWrite($AdvancedCFiles[$counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesSize[$counter] & "|" & $AdvancedCFilesModified[$counter] & @CRLF)
    
 $counter = $counter + 1
    EndIf

    EndIf
WEnd

..code..

Hey man, just letting you know I did the whole filefindfirstfile outside of that bit of code, so that wasnt the problem. That chunk was hastily copy pasted yesterday when I was sick of the program, lol. I'll give your suggestion a go though.
