Simple script to find files and give file size sum

Recommended Posts

BadGrim

Hello all,

I'm kinda stuck on a very simple task.

I have this small piece of code to find files and report the file size.

In the end, Im going to use it to search specific folders, exclude certain file extensions and report.

But I'm drawing a blank on how to give the total sum of the FileGetSize while running it through.

Please help :-)

#include <Array.au3>
#include "RecFileListToArray.au3"
$aList = _RecFileListToArray(@UserProfileDir&"\documents", "*.*", 1, 1, 0, 2)
For $i = 1 To $aList[0]
Local $iFile = $aList[$i]
MsgBox(4096, $iFile, $iFile)
$iSize = FileGetSize($aList[$i])
MsgBox(4096, $iSize, $iSize)
Next

Are you looking in different directories? If not, is there another reason you're not using DirGetSize instead?

I need to be able to filter out certain files types. Ya see, this is part of a main script we use to migrate clients data from physical pc to network shares. Then these people are using a vdi enviornment. We are not moving peoples itunes libraries and pirated movies, :-) and several other non business file types.

So, i have to do it at files level to get any acurate count/size on the files we are moving over.

I did actually figure out how to do it, but i did notice the udf recfilelisttoarray does not seem to intake multiple file exclusions. Or im using the wrong format.

Search for _RecFileListToArray and FileGetSize in the Forum & help file, but _RecFileListToArray is a custom UDF by Melba23, so you won't find this in the help file.

BadGrim,

You can get RecFileListToArray It looks like it take an include/exclude list as one of the parameters. Then it is a simple matter to loop throught the returned array and calc total size (as guinness i hinting at).

Just a suggestion, non-AutoIt related. I recently architected a very large VDI environment, and had to do this same task. If you have any budget at all, I would suggest investigating ProfileUnity. It is very low cost, and the amount of Profile customization and redirection you can accomplish with it is amazing.

BadGrim,

As the RecFileListToArray UDF does accept multiple exclusions, I can only beleive it is the latter! :D

If you let me see what you have tried I will try and help. :)
