Copying + Security

4 posts in this topic

I have a question. If I have a directory such as "Desktop" and I run the command below, would it automatically skip the files that it cannot read or will it error out? And would it be possible to add a seeker that will show progress of the copy?

DirCopy("C:\Documents and Settings\Richardo\Desktop", "C:\Backup\MyDocs\DesktopBackup", 1)

Also, is there a quick way to modify permissions on a folder without using tons of keystrokes? I've searched around but it didn't help.

1. Why don't you try it?

2. Not with DirCopy, do a search on the examples scripts forum with "titles only" for the words: "copy with progress"

3. I believe SetACL is usually used for that

Try it and see... seriously, this is too easy to just test. :party:

Google for SetACL.exe.
