Robocopy, XXcopy, Xcopy... AutoIT?

3 posts in this topic

This is more of an exploratory question... here's my problem.. I currently use a scripted version of Robocopy to sync up some usb keys with a server share, however, when we go across time zones, it's an issue, and when we change times, like Daylight Savings, and Daylight Spending in the U.S. we get out of sync because the operating system see's it's files as 1 hour ahead or behind what's on the key(s). I know there are programs out there to compensate for this, however, I'm looking for a FREE solution, and I use AIT constantly, for everything, but this one is eluding me. Does anyone know of a free utility to compensate for time zone issues? XXCopy requires you purchase the Pro version to get that functionality, and I'm not aware of any others?

You could use FileSetTime() on the files you intend to upload.

I can't help with other programs but I do know there are some autoit functions that may be of use.

FileGetTime - Returns the time and date information for a file.

FileSetTime - Sets the timestamp of one of more files.

You could check the local time and the net time and then change the stamp on the files you copy if needed.
