$FileGetSize doesn't refresh the file size

9 posts in this topic

Hi

Below is the code 

WinMinimizeAll()
Local $aaa = FileGetSize ( "D:\Datacap\Taskmaster_logs\tms.log" )
MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "", ByteSuffix($aaa))

Func ByteSuffix($iBytes)
    Local $iIndex = 0, $aArray = [' bytes', ' KB', ' MB', ' GB', ' TB', ' PB', ' EB', ' ZB', ' YB']
    While $iBytes > 1023
        $iIndex += 1
        $iBytes /= 1024
    WEnd
    Return Round($iBytes) & $aArray[$iIndex]
EndFunc   ;==>ByteSuffix

Not sure script prob or autoit prob...

Scenario is like this :-

a)  Open windows explorer & browse to D:\Datacap\Taskmaster_logs

b)  Check tms.log size (ie : 100mb)

c)  Minimize windows explorer

d)  Run above script & msgbox shows 100mb

e)  Let the taskmaster appl run for few days to increase the log

f)  Run above script again after few days & msgbox still shows 100mb

g)  Maximize windows explorer then in a blink, suddenly log size increase to 200mb

h)  Minimize windows explorer

i)  Run above script & msgbox shows 200mb

Questions :-

1)  To get the currect log size via $filegetsize, windows explorer need to be refreshed or closed ?

2)  Any additional script to add to refresh the log size in $filegetsize ?

Thx in advance...

You could try sending an F5 (refresh) before doing your Size query.

It would seem your system (Explorer, etc) has gone to sleep, so until it is refreshed you may only get what is in memory.

U mean open windows explorer & send F5 & minimize it back ?

Whatever works.

If Explorer is minimized, as you seem to have indicated, then you may need to Restore it first or make it active ... that might be enough or you may need to use F5 as well. Or you could simply close and re-open Explorer at that location.

Is this on a Laptop?

Regardless, I imagine it is a Windows issue as JohnOne said, probably tied into power saving or somesuch.

I'd look for a setting in Taskmaster for logging, see if anything stands out.

Checked aldy & nothing wrong with it...

Nope... It's physical server running on Win 2008...
