Copy Folder

13 posts in this topic




#2 ·  Posted (edited)

To move a folder, use the FileMove function.

Example:

If not FileMove("c:\topfolder\folder1","c:\anotherfolder\folder1")
    msgbox(0,"Error","FileMove failed!")
    exit(1)
endIf

As with the Windows Move command, the source and destination must be on the same drive for this to work (at least my test showed it wouldn't work between drives.)

To copy a folder you could run xcopy as follows (watch for line wrap in code below):

runwait(@comspec & " /c xcopy /s/e/i c:\topfolder\folder1 c:\anotherfolder\folder1")

If you have spaces in your paths you must enclose in quotes which looks confusing. Here is an example using variables:

runwait(@comspec & ' /c xcopy /s/e/i "' & $Src_Folder & '" "' & $Dest_Folder & '"')

FileCopy... Same syntax as FileMove (I think it is anyway).

From the unofficial docs: "The destination directory must already exist."

; method to copy a folder (with its contents)

DirCreate("C:\old")

FileCopy("C:\old\*.*", "C:\new\")

I think it will recurse on subfolders...

No it will not,

I try Jon Jon integrate an extension for solving this problem.

You can find what I did in http://www.hiddensoft.com/fileman/users/jpm/Dbg-Bastard

Perhaps I will be more successful on day :whistle:

Looking at SHFileOperation, it seems to support recursive copy and move.

I hate file functions, you can't add a single one without a chorus of "can it do folders" and bang, there goes another 1KB of code. Grrr :whistle:

This thread is 10 3/4 years old, not a great start.

Look in the help file for DirCopy, BTW.


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.
