RunWait do not stop.

Recommended Posts


I have a task that I need to clear terminated users home directory in the company. If the path to the folder have more than 256 characters I use robocopy to delete the folder. My function is this:

Func _RoboCopy_NoAD_Accounts($sFolderToDel)
    $prog = @SystemDir & '\RoboCopy.exe'
    $options = '/s /mir'
    $logg = '/LOG+:LogPath'
    Local $sStr = StringReverse($sFolderToDel)
    $sStr = StringReverse(StringMid($sStr,StringInStr($sStr,'\'),StringLen($sStr)))
    if DirCreate($sStr & 'empty_dir') <> 0 Then
        Local $source = $sStr & 'empty_dir'
$sComputername & '.log /NFL /NDL')
        Return RunWait('"' & $prog & '" "' & $source & '" "' & $sFolderToDel & '" ' & $options, "", @SW_MAXIMIZE) ; & ' ' & $logg & $sComputername & '.log /NFL /NDL')
EndFunc   ;==>_RoboCopy_NoAD_Accounts

and I call it like this:

if DirRemove($aListOfAllHomeFolders[$iIndex][0] & "\" & $aListOfAllhomeFolders[$iIndex][1], 1) <> 1 Then
                    If _RoboCopy_NoAD_Accounts($aListOfAllHomeFolders[$iIndex][0] & "\" & $aListOfAllhomeFolders[$iIndex][1]) <> 2 Then
                        _FileWriteLog($hFile, 'Robo Failed to delete ' & $aListOfAllHomeFolders[$iIndex][0] & "\" & $aListOfAllhomeFolders[$iIndex][1])
                        _FileWriteLog($hFile, 'Robo Succeed to delete ' & $aListOfAllHomeFolders[$iIndex][0] & "\" & $aListOfAllhomeFolders[$iIndex][1])
                        $iTotalSize = $iTotalSize + $iSize
                    _FileWriteLog($hFile, 'Succeed to delete ' & $aListOfAllHomeFolders[$iIndex][0] & "\" & $aListOfAllhomeFolders[$iIndex][1])
                    $iTotalSize = $iTotalSize + $iSize

But if the call to RoboCopy function and it is meet with a Error 5 (Access denied) is does not return it just continue to try to delete.

Yours sincerely
