Mirroring directories.

2 posts in this topic

Simply trying to get autoit to open command prompt and then enter a line to get robocopy to mirror a directory to another location and make a log file as well. Here is what I am struggling with.

"robocopy" "C:UsersRyanDownloads" "E:hi" /MIR /W:5 /R:3  /LOG: "E:SyncITlog" & @MON & "-" & @MDAY & "-" & @YEAR & "-" & "copylist.log"

I may be making this super complicated, but here's what I want to do. Mirror C:UsersRyanDownloads to E:hi and have it make a log file in E:SyncITlog, and name each log file look like this: 7-31-2013-copylist.log.

I am somewhat new to autoit so I apologize if this is a ridiculously stupid error. Thanks.

Don't use the command prompt for this, it's terribly inefficient, use the Run/RunWait command to run your command line instead.


If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
