find the newest file from all subdirs

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

i am trying to find the newest zip file from multiple subdirectories

i have a comination of the help file and one of zorophnog's postings

but i couldnt figure out how to do two things:

1. how to account for X arrays (directories)

2. how to retain the date for each one then compare them.

#Include <File.au3>

#Include <Array.au3>

$FileList=_FileListToArray("d:\localbackup")

If @Error=1 Then

MsgBox (0,"","No Files\Folders Found.")

Exit

EndIf

_ArrayDisplay($FileList,"$FileList")

MsgBox(0,"",$FileList[1])

Global $sDir, $hSearch, $sFilename, $sNewestFilename, $sNewestDate

$sDir = ("$FileList[1]")

If StringRight($sDir, 1) <> "\" Then $sDir &= "\"

$hSearch = FileFindFirstFile($sDir & "*.zip")

If $hSearch = -1 Then

MsgBox(0, "Error", "No .zip files were found.")

Exit

EndIf

While 1

$sFilename = FileFindNextFile($hSearch)

If @error Then ExitLoop

$sTemp = FileGetTime($sDir & $sFilename, 0, 1)

If $sTemp > $sNewestDate Then

$sNewestDate = $sTemp

$sNewestFilename = $sFilename

EndIf

WEnd

MsgBox(0, "Newest file", $sDir & $sNewestFilename)

Write it as a recursive function (one that calls itself). You might go see the weaponx primer on file search. Or just use the forum search function on "+recursive +search".
