Dircopy

Recommended Posts

Light

Hi :lmao:

I'm trying to backup 3 dir's in "@UserProfileDir" by using DirCopy.

2 of the dir's are copied OK.

The third is "Iexplore" (The dir where IE saves the links)

I tried "DirCopy" but it only gives me an error. I also tested the dir with "FileExists" , "DirGetSize" and "FileGetAttrib".

They gives me an error too.

Does someone know the solution to this....?I am using AutoIt3.exe ver 3, 2, 0, 1

I'm Admin

XP HOME

MsgBox (0,"","Return value from FileGetAttrib  "& @CRLF & "Path : " &@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore  : " &  FileGetAttrib(@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore" )& "  @error : " & @error)

MsgBox (0,"","Return value from DirGetSize : "& @CRLF & "Path : " &@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore  : " & DirGetSize(@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore" )& "    @error : " & @error)

MsgBox (0,"","Return value from FileExists : "& @CRLF & "Path : " &@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore  : " & FileExists(@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore")& " @error : " & @error)

MsgBox (0,"","Return value from Dircopy : "& @CRLF & "Path : " &@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore  : " & DirCopy(@UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore","C:\",1)& "   @error : " & @error)

you must have renamed the favorites folder to IEXPLORE as thats not the normal name for it -dunno why it would change to FAVORITTER ?

try using the macro @FavoritesDir instead of @UserProfileDir & "\Iexplore that way it should always be correct.
