[SOLVED] how to find and copy entire folder

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hi,

I want to search a folder that has a name "ABC" in that folder. This mean including folder named ABC1, 1ABC, ABC2, 2ABC, 11ABC22, etc. If yes then copy those folder to desktop. If the folder doesn't exist then find a file with name "ABC" in the file name and copy them to desktop. Any idea how to do this?

I know about DirCopy but cant find a way to search and match the folder name.

Thanks a lot :)

In command prompt:

move *ABC* %userprofile%\desktop\

Or AutoIt:

Run("move *ABC* %userprofile%\desktop\")

Depends on working directory of course. You can also do something like:

move C:\MyFolderThatHasLotsOfAbcFilesRandomly\*ABC* %userprofile%\desktop\

Hi michaelslamet,

perhaps you also want to take a look at the RecFileListToArray() Function by Melba23:

_FileListToArray() will find files or filders and return them to an array.

You just have to parse the file/foldernames and create your logic from there.

This is what I need!

Thanks JohnOne, Manadar and Hannes123 :)
