DirCopy - It thinks it fails

7 posts in this topic

Hi.

I am trying to copy a folder using the DirCopy function and the copying goes fine, but the function returns 0 as if it failed.

This is my code:

$home = "P:\IT\Backup\"
If FileExists(@AppDataDir & "\Microsoft\Signaturer") Then
If DirCopy(@AppDataDir & "\Microsoft\Signaturer", $home & "Signaturer", 1) = 0 Then Exit (2)
Else
Exit (1)
EndIf

I tried replacing the 1 to a 0 in the flag parameter, this doesnt change anything.

Am I missing something or is this a bug in the function ?

Maybe the COPYING is already done and overwriting fails

try to change the destination folder as see if you get any positive results

In my WIN 7 it worked as expected

It appears to be the network location I'm trying to copy to. I can copy the folder as many times to any other location, but if I try to copy the folder to the P drive i randomly chooses to return failure and succeeds codes. Guess I'll have to check if the folder copied some other way.

Thanks for the help though :D

I have the same problem when copying from a fixed drive to an USB stick : the function returned 0 even though the files and folers are copied successfully (same sizes and numbers of files/folders on both source and destination). Can someone help, please ?

$save_path = "d:src"

If Not DirCopy($save_path, $key_drive & "xfert", 1) Then

$key_drive may be (f:, g:, h:, ...) depends on what other devices are connected to the computer.

jayflo276,

I suggest that you add some further errorchecking to see if the copy has succeeded and not depend on the function return. A quick FileExists line should do the trick. ;)

thanks for your reply, melba23.

Since I don't know in advance what's in the $save_path directory, I'll first load the file list (full path) into a table and then use Filecopy for each file.

jayflo276,

No need to do that - something along these lines:

; Get rid of an existing folder
DirRemove($key_Drive & "xfert", 1)
; Check it has gone
If FileExists($key_Drive & "xfert") Then
    ; Error deleting
Else
    ; Copy the folder
    DirCopy($save_path, $key_drive & "xfert", 1)
    ; Check it exists
    If FileExists($key_Drive & "xfert") Then
        ; All done
    Else
        ; Error copying
    EndIf
EndIf

should do the trick (although I have not tested it). :)
