_FileCopy function without showing overwrite dialogue box

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

Long time since i've been on here now. I've got a quick question.

Does anyone know how I can get the following code to not display a dialogue box asking me if I want to overwrite files already within the directory.

_FileCopy ($working_location & "*", $backup_location)

Func _FileCopy($fromFile,$tofile)
Local $FOF_RESPOND_YES = 16
Local $FOF_SIMPLEPROGRESS = 256
$winShell = ObjCreate("shell.application")
$winShell.namespace($tofile).CopyHere($fromFile,$FOF_RESPOND_YES)

EndFunc

Check if the file exists and delete it and then copy the file.

Odd. Your example will repeatedly re-copy and overwrite an existing file for me without any prompt. Only if I remove the $FOF_RESPOND_YES parameter will it ask for confirmation. XP Pro SP3 here. Maybe Vista behaves differently.
