Search files recursively and copy it in one folder.

I'm trying find files and copy it in one folder. Here is my script:

#include <File.au3>

Local $iRandom = Random(000000001, 999999999, 1)

Local $aArray = _FileListToArrayRec("q:\", "111.txt", 1, 1, 0, 2)
For $i = 1 to $aArray[0]
    FileCopy($aArray[$i], @DesktopDir & "\111" & "(" & $iRandom & ")" & ".txt")

All files have similar names, and situated in different folders. That's why I added "Random" number in each new file when copying.

BUT! Script does not want working properly. It copying only one file, but doesn't copy each file from array.

Can you help me understand what I'm doing wrong?

Thank you! Have a nice day! =)

Welcome to the AutoIt forums.

You need to put the Random line inside the loop - at the moment you are overwriting the same file all the time.
