xcopy like features

Recommended Posts

RedneckTech

Right now i have several batch file backups running of just raw user data. basically running:

xcopy {current location} {target locatiion} /d /c /e /h /r /q /y

i see that autoIT has a DirCopy command, but im wondering if it has an option like xcopy to skip that file and continue on if it has a problem (/c)

the batch files work nicely, but im trying to get rid of old files from the backup location. Ran into this problem several times ex: "i deleted that file. its not supposed to exist for legal reasons". kind of not what im looking for.

So basically im wondering if we can get some kind of loop going to copy over every file while ignoring errors and overwrite without prompting, then go through and delete files that are not age appropriate. i understand comparing to _NowCalcDate, but the problem is with entering subfolders and scanning them as well.

not looking for the script to be written for me as there are other things (error reports and the like) but just somewhere to start

See DirCopy in the Help file >>

[optional] this flag determines whether to overwrite file if they already exist:

0 = (default) do not overwrite existing files

1 = overwrite existing files

Or/And search XCOPY on the forum as there are examples of how to use XCOPY directly in AutoIt (Hint: Run() command) Edited by guinness

i was going to use xcopy directly like that if there was no option to ignore errors with the autoIT DirCopy. and thats why im asking because although the Help file is a godsend, its not perfect.

thank you

There is a great app out there called YCOPY - it skips and documents the scipped files.


All by me:

"Sometimes you have to go back to where you started, to get to where you want to go." 

"Everybody catches up with everyone, eventually" 

"As you teach others, you are really teaching yourself."

From my dad

"Do not worry about yesterday, as the only thing that you can control is tomorrow."

      Hi!
      I want to get the signal in this website:
      https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd
      I have tried using _IEBodyReadText  and some _StringBetween. What happens is that the text are being update every tick and _IEBodyReadText doesn't.
      To perform the update I used  _IEAction($oIE, "refresh") but it's not good because the website block me after some time due too many requests..
      Is there any other way to get this text every tick?
      PS: The text I want to get is WAIT, CALL or PUT.
       
      Here is the code:
      global $oIE = _IECreate ('https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd', 0, 1 , 1 , 0) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') ;MsgBox ( 0, "asf", $result[0]) $espera=StringInStr($result[0], "WAIT") $compra=StringInStr($result[0], "CALL") $venda=StringInStr($result[0], "PUT") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $espera) $n=0 $c=0 Captar() Func Captar() ;_IENavigate($oIE, "https://binary-signal.com/pt/chart/eurusd") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') If (Not $compra=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "COMPRE") $n=1 $c=$c+1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=0 Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "VENDA") $c=$c+1 $n=1 ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() ElseIf (Not $venda=0) And $n=1 Then ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", "Esperando próxima rodada") $n=1 ;MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", $n) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Sleep(60000) Captar() Else ;MsgBox("", "", "ESPERE") $n=0 Sleep(1000) ;_IEAction($oIE, "refresh") Local $sText = _IEBodyReadText($oIE) $result = _StringBetween ( $sText , 'PUTEUR/USD on Binary-signal.com', 'sinal está PRONTA') Captar() EndIf EndFunc

      I want to copy just the selected text in an input control and put it to the clipboard, but GuiCtrlRead() always reads all of the text in the control.
      In this test code, when I highlight a  portion of the left control's text and press ^C, I want to copy just that text to the clipboard; but when I highlight a  portion of the right control's text and press ^C, I want to copy all of its text to the clipboard.

      I woud like to know how i can handle my Problem.
      ----
      I have a Excel Data with 362 random numbers.
      For Example:
      1166642335374 1172899897343
      .....
      this numbers are a part of the filepath ...example
      D:\Projekte\1166_64233_5374
      as u can see its the first number of the Excel data. After the first 4 numbers it shoud make a "_" than another 5 "_"
      This is my first question. How can i handle this to make it Shell execute.
       
      --------

      For Example:
      D:\Projekte\1166_64233_5374
      the code shoud search for specific PDF Files.

      Hey Everybody,
      as you know im on a very low autoit-level.
      My question is: How can i read all PDFs from a Folder wich is open and copy them to a Folder on a Desktop.
       
      The Folder wich contains the PDFs is variable Z:\Projektls\"*"*"*EVERYTIME ANOTHER ENDING"*"*"*"*"
      There can be 1 PDF or even 15 PDFs.
      i tried it with _FileListToArray and _FileCopy but i Need some help to understand this language
       
      THANKS!
