Files are not getting replaced with filecopy

Recommended Posts

$RootDir = "C:\x86\"
$BinariesFolder = "C:\Binaries\x86\0717-15.Binary.r9642_Release_win32_Fresh"

$DestinationFolder = $RootDir & "_AppFiles-Telos"
$SourceFolder=$BinariesFolder
FileCopy($SourceFolder & "\*.*", $DestinationFolder & "\", $FC_OVERWRITE + $FC_CREATEPATH)

In the above code, even if I keep $FC_OVERWRITE, the existing files are not getting replaced.

Any suggestion please.

Have you tried with #RequireAdmin at the top of your script?

No, but the files are in the folder where the current user has full permissions.

So try it anyway, worst case it doesn't work ;)

 

Got to know the root cause by checking some which are not getting replaced.
They are with Read-only attribute and even with #RequireAdmin they are not getting replaced.
Can you suggest what to do with them.?

If they're read only, you'll need to use FileSetAttribute to unprotect them before trying to overwrite them.


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.

It is around 4000 files with read-only attribute among  7000 files in the folder.

Present I am removing read-only attribute from the FileSetAttribute using a for loop.
Is there any option to copy forecfully even readonly is there, instead of removing the attribute.Because with windows explorer they are replacing directly in GUI.

Instead of removing the attribute(s) in a loop, you can use the Run command and just run ATTRIB -r *.* in the folder. This will remove the RO attribute on all files in that folder. Something like this.

Run(@ComSpec & " /c attrib -r " & $BinariesFolder & "\*.*")

      This is a naive question, but here goes. If a variable contains sensitive information, like a password, is there any value to overwriting its contents before exiting the script? In other words, in the example below, would someone poking around in memory after the script finishes still be able to find the original value of variable $sPass? (Putting aside, for present purposes, the obvious fact that the script itself contains the sensitive information.) Is there a better way to cover one's tracks, as it were? Thanks in advance. 
      Local $sPass = "My password is 'very+very_strong'" ; Do something here, then overwrite $sPass: If Not _OverwriteVar("sPass") Then MsgBox(0, "", "Variable overwrite failed!") Else MsgBox(0, "", "'sPass' now overwritten with " & $sPass) EndIf Exit Func _OverwriteVar($sVarName, $sOverStrChar = "#") If IsDeclared($sVarName) <> 0 Then If Not IsString(Eval($sVarName)) Then Assign($sVarName, String(Eval($sVarName))) Assign($sVarName, StringRegExpReplace(Eval($sVarName), ".", $sOverStrChar)) Return 1 Else Return 0 EndIf EndFunc ;==>_OverwriteVar

      Is there a reliable way to ensure that data assigned to variables in a script is overwritten or deleted when the script exits? I have scripts that encrypt/decrypt data and would like to ensure, if possible, that the encryption keys and decrypted data do not stay in memory after the script exits. Thanks.

      Hi,
      Good Day!
      I have a problem and having difficulty implementing it. I want to copy the files in a certain folder, rename it, and when it exist in the destination folder it will add an index counter.
       
      Example source folder having files like:
      AA_123.TXT
      BB_123.TXT
      CC_123.TXT
      DD_123.TXT
       
      After file copy the target folder would be like this:
      123.TXT
      123_1.TXT
      123_2.TXT
      123_3.TXT
       
      How to achieve this?
      Thanks in advance

      Struggling to get Filecopy() working
      MsgBox(0,"Moving file: ", $fLine) ; C:\AlmeterS3\AI74_No2.csv FileCopy( $fLine, "C:\AlmeterS3\S3_Database\") ; FileCopy( $fLine, $BatchDir & "\S3_Database\") If @error Then MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "ERROR!", "database write error " & @error) EndIf FileDelete( $fLine) doesn't copy only creates a file "C:\AlmeterS3\S3_Database" (actually AI74_No2.csv)
      Again my typo I should have added
      $FC_OVERWRITE + $FC_CREATEPATH since folder didn't actually exist.

      Hi,
      I do recognize bad behaviour at this snippet:
      #include <AutoItConstants.au3> Global $g_sSD = @ScriptDir & "\" Global $g_sBurstPath = $g_sSD & "Burst\" DirCreate($g_sBurstPath) Local $sFileName = "Test_mit_3_Seiten.pdf" ; any PDF with more than 1 page inside @ScriptDir FileCopy($g_sSD & $sFileName, $g_sBurstPath & $sFileName, 1) ;~ Sleep(13000) Local $hTimer = TimerInit() ConsoleWrite("Start" & @CRLF) _Burst($g_sBurstPath & $sFileName) ; bursts PDF into single pages ;~ While _FileInUse($g_sBurstPath & $sFileName) ;~ WEnd ConsoleWrite("End: " & Round(TimerDiff($hTimer)) & "ms" & @CRLF) Exit Func _quotePath($sPath) ; because of possible "spaces" inside pathes $sPath = '"' & $sPath & '"' Return $sPath EndFunc Func _Burst($sFile) Local $sPDFtk = $g_sSD & "pdftk.exe" ; path to pdftk.exe (and libiconv2.dll) Local $sCurrWorkingDir = @WorkingDir FileChangeDir($g_sBurstPath) ; it has to change for reasons Local $iPID = Run(_quotePath($sPDFtk) & ' ' & _quotePath($sFile) & ' burst', "", @SW_SHOW, $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD) ; @SW_SHOW just to see "PDFtk is working" Local $sOutput, $sError While 1 $sOutput &= StdoutRead($iPID) $sError &= StderrRead($iPID) If @error Then ExitLoop Sleep(10) WEnd FileChangeDir($sCurrWorkingDir) ; back to normal EndFunc Func _FileInUse($sFilename) ; by Siao Local $aRet, $hFile $aRet = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "hwnd", "CreateFile", _ "str", $sFilename, _ ;lpFileName "dword", 0x80000000, _ ;dwDesiredAccess = GENERIC_READ "dword", 0, _ ;dwShareMode = DO NOT SHARE "dword", 0, _ ;lpSecurityAttributes = NULL "dword", 3, _ ;dwCreationDisposition = OPEN_EXISTING "dword", 128, _ ;dwFlagsAndAttributes = FILE_ATTRIBUTE_NORMAL "hwnd", 0) ;hTemplateFile = NULL $hFile = $aRet[0] If $hFile = -1 Then ;INVALID_HANDLE_VALUE = -1 $aRet = DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "GetLastError") SetError($aRet[0]) Return 1 ; file in use (@error contains system error code) Else ;close file handle DllCall("Kernel32.dll", "int", "CloseHandle", "hwnd", $hFile) Return 0 ; file not in use EndIf EndFunc This bursting took about 15000ms. If I activate line 8 "Sleep(13000)" then the bursting itself never needed more than 1000ms. Round about 13000ms delay is needed until bursting is acting very fast, otherwise needing about 15000ms.
      Then I tested _FileInUse() instead of _Burst() w/o Sleep(13000). This runs in 3ms. It seemes to me that FileCopy() and Burst() are interacting in a way I can't see.
      Any ideas? Regards, Conrad
      P.S. You need pdftk.exe and libiconv2.dll at @ScriptDir. This you can get free here: https://www.pdflabs.com/tools/pdftk-server/ (I'm not sure whether I'm allowed to attach it here).
