Dropbox like functionality

1 post in this topic

im currently in the process of making a raided file store at home using freenas or openmediavault, or something similar.

i had an idea of making my own dropbox like storage, where i can put a file into a specified folder, and it would automatically upload to my file storage. i would prob use some kind of encrypted ftp, but am unsure how well this will work with autoit. i have done some autoit, but this maybe beyond my scope, lol.

but basically... i think the script would always be running, and check to see if the file already exists, and if not transfer it, and it could either check when a change was detected, or maybe check every ten minutes or something. or maybe if there is an dtp functuon a,ready, set a default override existing file to "no"

just curious if anyone had any ideas, its going to be a while before i finish my system

      I've finally come up with a simple solution for dragging & dropping a URL.
      It's not perfect, but it does the job. Mostly just a tweak of some Help file examples.
      Thanks also to AutoBert, for his StringRegExp and example that set me on the right path.
      I have seen this requested for many times, so enjoy!
      It goes without saying, that any improvements are welcome.

      The following works fine on my Win XP laptop, but fails (also when compiled) on my Win 7 Netbook.
      I found a RichEdit example in the GUICtrlCreateEdit function (Example 2) in the AutoIt v3.3.0.0 Help file, and modified that to suit my script.
      Failure is no doubt due to 'MSCOMCT2.OCX' missing from the System32 folder, at the very least.
      Any solution to getting the following to work on Win 7 would be greatly appreciated. Perhaps a different '.OCX' file etc.

      I'm looking to create a script which will download all *.txt files from a remote FTP server.
      Once downloaded, delete all *.txt files.
      Can this be achieved using AutoIt ?

      Hi folks,
      I'm using the udf #include <FTPEx.au3> to "download" some files from our zOS (MVS) system via autoit FTP with _FTP_FileGet.
      The FileGet works, but the codepage is wrong. Special German chars like öäüß are not transfered correctly.
      Any idea how to set the codepage? Swichting between binary or ascii doesn't solve the problem.
      Using the ftp command in a cmd.exe window it works like this : quote site sbd=(IBM-273,iso8859-1)
