Search for Duplicates - File extension

4 posts in this topic

Hello

i have a directory that contains files from a web service, in this directory all the filees from the webservice is stored. when a users submits a form on the websites, the form and attachements are store here.

When the users submits the form the following files are trasfered to the folder:

1.xml file with form id information etc.

2.PDF file with information

3.Attachment any kind of extension.

i need to search this folder for the name of the .xml files, and check if a pdf files exist with the same name, and if the pdf files dosn't exist the xml files and attachment's with the same name should be deleted.

i don't know where to start, if somone could point me in the right direction it would be super :)

Don't know if this work correctly, but at least it gives you a right direction (or at least i think so) ...

#include <Array.au3>
#include <File.au3>
Dim $XmlNames,$PdfNames
$XmlFiles=_FileListToArray("C:","*.*",1);file only
_ArrayDisplay($XmlFiles,"")
for $i=1 to UBound($XmlFiles)-1
if StringInStr($XmlFiles[$i],".xml",2)<>0 Then
$XmlNames=StringReplace($XmlFiles[$i],".xml","");Name of Xml files
EndIf

$PdfFiles=_FileListToArray("C:","*.*")
for $j=1 to UBound($PdfFiles)-1
if StringInStr($PdfFiles[$j],".pdf",2)<>0 Then
$PdfNames=StringReplace($PdfFiles[$j],".pdf","");Name of Pdf files
EndIf   

if $XmlNames <> $PdfNames Then
FileDelete("C:\" & $XmlNames & ".xml")
FileDelete("C:\" & $XmlNames & ".*")
EndIf
Next
Next

P/s : I lose 2 of my au3 file while testing this script :)

Hello

This seems to delete all the xml files both when the pdf files exist and when they don't. the xml files and the other files (doc, xls) should be deleted only if it Dont exist a pfd file with the sanme name as the xml file and attachment files.

thanks :)
