Saveas file in their respective locations - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone!

Would request your help on how to saveas a file in its previous location. Lets say

file 1 path :  C:\Windows\User1\file1.txt

file 2 path : C:\Users\User2\file2.txt

I have written a script that will saveas both file and save in the same location (lets say desktop). How can i modify the script so that the files will be saved as

file 1 : C:\Windows\User1\file1_copy.txt

file 2 : C:\Users\User2\file2_copy.txt.

 

Thanks in advance

Actually i dont want to create a direct copy of files in same location.

let me explain you the scenario.. I have 2 text file open with file1.txt, file2.txt name (different location as mentioned before). I'm automatically closing if there is no interaction with notepad. Before closing, i would like to create a copy of both files (unsaved/modified) in their respective folders.

I just showed how to create the new filename with "_copy" inserted.
When and how you use this new filename is up to you.
If you show your script, we can certainly help.

Please find the script below for saving part, (attached from other forum)

If $count > 10 Then
         WinActivate(notepad)
         WinWaitActive(notepad)
         Send("!s")
         Sleep(5000)
         Send("Auto file save   "&@HOUR&"_"&@MIN&"_"&@SEC)
         Sleep(5000)
         Send("{Enter}")
         ProcessClose("Notepad.exe")
      EndIf

Please let me know if you need more details. I hope i need to make changes in highlighted (Bold) text.
