Basic DirCopy progress

Recommended Posts

jimbob

Hi,

I'm new to AutoIT and scripting in general.

I'm writing a script to copy several directories from a local drive to a network drive using DirCopy. I'd like a progress bar to show that progress is being made. It doesn't have to be accurate, just a reminder to the user that something is being done.

I tried creating a loop to print "." to command line every couple seconds but it failed.

Any assistance is appreciated.

Well since I was board.. I decided to basically re-write the "DirCopy" function so that you could actually get a "Current Progress.." so here's the script..

Source :

#Include <File.Au3>
Global $New_Drive = 'New'; Dest. drive. 
Global $Old_Drive = 'C:\Users\John\Shared'; Source drive.

; Check for errors..
If FileExists ($Old_Drive) = '0' Then Exit ConsoleWrite ('Error : "$Old_Drive" dose not exist.' & @CRLF)
If FileExists ($New_Drive) = '0' Then DirCreate ($New_Drive)
Global $Old_Size = DirGetSize ($Old_Drive)
If $Old_Size = '0' Then Exit ConsoleWrite ('Error : "$Old_Drive" has a size of 0.')

; List all files in "$Old_Drive"
$List = _FileListToArray ($Old_Drive, '*','1')
    
; Copy all files from "$Old_Drive" to "$New_Drive"
If $List['0'] <> '0' Then 
For $A = '1' To $List['0']
FileCopy ($Old_Drive & '\' & $List[$A], $New_Drive & '\' & $List[$A], '1')
ConsoleWrite ('Progress : ' & _GetProgress () & @CRLF)
Next
EndIf   

; List all folders in "$Old_Drive"
$List = _FileListToArray ($Old_Drive, '*','2')
    
; Copy all folders from "$Old_Drive" to "$New_Drive"
If $List['0'] <> '0' Then 
For $A = '1' To $List['0']
DirCopy ($Old_Drive & '\' & $List[$A], $New_Drive & '\' & $List[$A], '1')
ConsoleWrite ('Progress : ' & _GetProgress () & @CRLF)
Next
EndIf 

Func _GetProgress ()
Return Round ((DirGetSize ($New_Drive) / $Old_Size) * '100', '0')
EndFunc

Hope this helps~!

Oh yeah next time.. please include your script.., also I didn't add a GUI.. or anything.. if you need help making a GUI with a progress bar then ill help xD ><
